We find ourselves at a unique and significant crossroads where peace studies and peacebuilding are in transition to more critical and emancipatory approaches. The developing relationships and interdependence that cut across borders, cultures, ethnicities, genders, sexualities, and (dis)abilities have brought a new focus to the field of Peace and Conflict Studies. Hence, strategies for building sustainable peace are sought to envision a new inclusive future.
Various forms of presentations are welcome (including artistic and creative works). Please submit an abstract (see proposal guideline), describing your research or project, on a subject related to, but not limited to, the following categories:
•critical and emancipatory peacebuilding,
•mediation and negotiation
•religion and spirituality,
•children and youth,
•migration and border policies,
•sports, arts, media,
•peace and development
•peace economics / indices
•and/or other contemporary peace topics.
