||As I am in the final stage of my PhD and have just received my supervisors' feedback for the first
draft of my PhD project, the last mile before finishing my research project made me want to
reconfirm my interdisciplinary approach combining economics and social science as well as
humanitarian and development perspectives. In addition, I started wondering about potential next
career steps and my professional future. When I became aware of the International Conference on
Advances in Social Science, Economics and Human Behavior - SEH 2014, I was immediately
convinced that this conference would help me regarding both concers. The SEH 2014 was part of
the 2014 IRED Malaysia Conferences taking place in Kuala Lumpur on March 8th and 9th, 2014.
As a listener, I had the opportunity to observe inspiring presentations of high quality academic
papers by dedicated researchers from all over the world. Once again, I can consider myself very
lucky to be a student of a structured PhD program with the Research School as RUB’s internal
funding body, which furthers both interdisciplinary research and internationality. Research School
PLUS also supports non-active conference participations and therefore helped me benefit from the
SEH 2014 in the best way possible.
