Welcome to the International Round Table Symposiums

The International Round Table Symposiums are international educational organizations whose purpose is to promote education, art, science, religion, environmental studies and charity. This purpose is effectuated by the conduct of interdisciplinary symposia and the publication of meritorious manuscripts emanating therefrom.

 

The Round Table seeks to provide an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of contemporary issues that affect the public good in all its various forms and ramifications. The public good is expansively interpreted to include all matters that enrich the human experience and enhance the human condition. The International Round Table Symposiums are unique forums, not a conference in the conventional sense, but rather an opportunity for scholars and leaders to discuss education, art, science, religion and environmental studies in a collegial, "think-tank" atmosphere. The structure of the program allows for the dialogue of participants to freely flow in response to issues presented at each meeting. While avoiding specific topical prescription, we endeavour to stimulate debate through eliciting meaningful dialogue by suggesting certain themes for discussion. Past themes have included considerations of childhood education, human rights, social justice, economics, history, religion, women, environment and climate change, ethics, morals, law, medicine and the liberal arts and sciences.

 

Each session is designed around a format that enables participants to present papers and to engage in discussions regarding those papers in both formal colloquy and informal dialogue. Papers presented may be submitted for publication in the Forum on Public Policy, an on-line and a hard copy journal. Manuscripts are evaluated by peer external reviewers and accepted or rejected based on quality and contribution to the particular field of knowledge. The Forum is indexed by Gale/Cengage Learning and EBSCO.

 

Academic Independence is an important aspect of the International Round Table Symposiums. We are not under the control of the hosting Oxford colleges, most of which are established as endowed sectarian foundations, nor is it in any way under the aegis, restraint or sanctions of the University of Oxford; rather, the Round Table is free-standing, apolitical and non-denominational.
