WCWS 2017 Participants Published 14 SCOPUS-Indexed Papers in 2018

The 3rd World Conference on Women’s Studies 2017 was hosted by The International Institute of Knowledge Management (TIIKM) on 4th – 6th May 2017 in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This issue represents the second special issue of the JIWS coming out of the WCWS. The papers included increasing awareness of issues faced by women across and within nations, emphasizing both local and transnational struggles and achievements. They also help to fulfil the mission of the JIWS, which is to provide a platform for the publication of articles by women largely, but not exclusively, from the global south, to highlight the range of feminist discourses, promoting conversations across the power divides of the publishing industry.


The conference was conducted under the theme, “Building Resilience: Dialogue, Collaboration and Partnerships across Our Differences”. The Conference witnessed the participation of 101 participants representing 25 countries across the world. The countries include Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, China, Egypt, Germany, India, Iceland, Indonesia, Iran, Ivory Coast, Japan, Nepal, Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, Portugal, Qatar, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Trinidad & Tobago, United Kingdom and the United States. TIIKM honors the commitment to raising the standard for research and broadening the knowledge in pertinent fields.
