All around the world, we witness that power now rests in networks. The commencement of digital era encourages it, Whether nation states or local communities are deeply affected, especially by inclusion in and exclusion from the global networks. Networks structure a various sectors in society at any level. It is crucial to look closely at essential of connectivity and access within networks. Meanwhile, networks can also create a serious impediment to the outsiders with nothing to offer the network. The new forms of network society offer challenges in a way that despite the disappearance of conventional ties, exploitation, marginalization, exclusion and differentiation remain.

In regard with the phenomenon, the 4thrd APRISH 2019, would bring the theme “Network Society: Continuity and Change”.  It invites multi- and trans-disciplinary discussion on examining the dynamic social, political, economic and legal structure in the age of network society of the twenty-first century.
