Current Researches in Geography
Here is a collection of articles that reflects the efforts of IASSR in Sofia, 2017. The presented articles concern a very wide range of issues and problems and are an invaluable source for the transfer of experience and knowledge in these areas. Modern society is dynamic and open to innovation and changes, which will be supported by conferences that not only serve academic needs but also create conditions for building trust and mutual respect.
Communication and Digital Media
Social responsibility is an area of practice covering a wide institutional range that expands from profit-oriented private organizations to non-profit private organizations, from profit-oriented public institutions to non-profit public institutions. Even though each relevant institutional structure has different purposes of carrying social responsibility awareness, the common ground underlying them is to eliminate deficiencies and disadvantages observed in social and ecological life. In other words, making world more livable place and increasing the life quality of the community are among the main objectives of social responsibility.
CURRENT PERSPECTIVES IN SOCIAL SCIENCES
The social changes and challenges of the 21st century encourage new scientific and methodological pursuits in the quest for new developments in the field of social studies. An emerging perspective in academic publishing promotes interdisciplinary reflection for a more coherent understanding of current problems addressed by economics, social justice, and other scientific areas that society and policy makers engage in. This book series stands proof that complex issues are better understood and resolved with insight from more than one disciplinary framework.
Communication & Media Researches
Collecting such a high number of contributions on Communication studies is an important opportunity to check the latest changes in a scientific field whose borders have always been very movable. This is a consequence of the discipline’s debt to older and wider scientific fields, such as social and political sciences, psychology anthropology and language studies. But it is also an answer to the sudden changing of the contemporary world, that force Communication studies to a constant update of theoretical frameworks and research methods – just think to the huge innovation brought by the massive use of social media in micro and macro contexts of communication, involving relations between primary groups as well as dynamics happening in McLuhan’s global village.

the European Dream.

Recent Developments in Sociology and Social Work
The book Recent Developments in Sociology and Social Work edited by Georgeta Rata,
Mehmet Ali Içbay and Hasan Arslan gathers papers on two overlapping disciplines –
(applied) sociology and social work – that study community, social interaction and the effect
of various systems such as family, school, community, law, or political sphere on the
individual. If sociology provides a thorough examination of the causes of social dysfunction
(putting an emphasis on theory and focusing on social groups to lead to individuals), social
work is more focused on practical strategies to alleviate it (trying to change or improve a part
of society by focusing on each individual).
