The Peace and Conflict Studies Association of Canada (PACS-Can) is an evolving community of scholars, educators, and practitioners united by a common commitment to the promotion of just and non-violent solutions to contemporary conflict, whether at the local, national, or global level. We aim to amplify the voice of the evolving peace and conflict studies community within Canada, and to provide a collaborative forum for those working in the fields of peace and conflict studies, conflict resolution, alternative dispute resolution, and restorative and transitional justice. We seek to foster research, debate, and dialogue on how Canada can best contribute to the creation of just, sustainable societies, to the peaceful settlement of disputes, and to the reduction of violent conflict.
We invite you to consider becoming a member of PACS-Can. In addition to joining a growing community of like-minded individuals, your PACS-Can membership also means you will automatically also become a member of the Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA), a bi-national association of Canadian and US scholars, teachers and activists.
PACS-Can is generously supported by our Sponsoring Programs
