The fifth International Research Conference on Humanities and Social Sciences organised by the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Sri Jayewardenepura, Sri Lanka (IRCHSS-2016) is a research forum for the comparative treatment of ideas, cutting-edge issues and problems related to Humanities and Social Sciences. The theme for the conference is ‘Transformation for Empowerment: Moving beyond Buzzwords’. By bringing together established and emerging scholars, and by opening a critical space for all – academics, professionals, policy makers and the public – the IRCHSS-2016’s intent is to unlock and reframe the perception of empowerment through concerted thinking and collaborative work. The conference, which is interdisciplinary in method and internationalist in spirit, will be held on 10th  and 11th  November, 2016 at the University.
