65 years after the historical 1955 Bandung Conference, is there any change in global order in all its dimensions (cultural, ecological, economical, political and spiritual dimensions) ? In what sense Bandung constitutes a rupture and a continuity of historical global order ? Is colonialism dead and decolonisation completed ? Is the position of centre and peripheries of capitalism stable or moving ? Does development means following the centre ? Did multipolarism replace bipolarism ? Does Bandung constitute a bifurcation in the trajectory of historical world system ? Is the notion of division East-West and North-South still relevant ? Is the notion of class struggle still useful ? Does the end of Cold War mean the end of potential World War ? Did new hegemons replace the old ones ? Why does the armament technology continue to develop ? Who do take benefit of the armament industries and trade ? What is the place of individual living being, human as well as animal and vegetation, in this changing world ? Is there any chance for the poor, the weak, the disadvantaged, to improve their state of being in peaceful way ? Is there any role of humanities, art, culture, architecture, literature, religion, spirituality in directing the global change ? Africa

A human being of four is Asian woman. It is therefore essential to consider women’s issues starting from Asia. What lesson we may learn from the men-women inequality in that region, what problems are appearing with intensity ? Are we in a progressive period of women’s status or in the contrary ? In Asia, all women do not live in the same space and time. What is in common between a Chinese businesswoman, a Japanese housewife, an Indian woman farmer, an Indonesian woman minister and a Vietnamese woman worker ? Those are among the questions to be discussed.
