Over the last fifty years, the world has undergone significant changes due to several catastrophes. These include the environmental crisis resulting from climate changes, which has disrupted the ecosystem and caused horrible consequences for human and non-human lives, including a lack of food and even famine in several parts of the world. The wars that have erupted worldwide have driven waves of refugees and migrants from less advantaged nations to search for a better life in more economically developed countries, while others are leaving their homeland just so they might survive.

Lastly, pandemics, like Covid 19, have altered our way of living and relating to others. All these changes have led us to become a "fluid" society, which is constantly changing. This provides new challenges for researchers from the myriad of varied disciplines: to build a sustainable global society based upon social justice.
