Conference: The Peace and Justice Studies Association
September 15 - September 17
Informed global citizens understand that we are in crisis. The interlocking challenges posed by environmental destruction, gaping social and economic inequalities, global mental health crises, rampant consumerism, and a politics of power which stymies meaningful debate have led humanity to the precipice. What we desperately need for a peace-filled future is positive peace, the type of peace recognizing the interconnectedness of our individual beings with others and the environment. The 2023 Peace and Justice Studies Association invites scholars, activists, students, community-based practitioners, experiential educators, musicians, artists, social-movement organizers, and other interested people or groups to offer ideas about, approaches to, or critiques of positive peace.
