PEACEBUILDING, JUSTICE AND SECURITY:

TAKING STOCK OF THE PAST 25 YEARS

Thursday, March 1, 2018, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Saint Paul University Amphitheatre

Peacebuilding has become a major theme in the rehabilitation of war-torn societies since the 1990s. It relates to the efforts devoted to changing the root causes and power structures that lead to violent conflict.

Many peacebuilding efforts have concentrated on the justice system and the security apparatus of war-affected societies.

This conference, including a mix of academics and practitioners, will have for its central objective to identify the best practices in these key areas.

There is no registration fee, but attendees should register at the following address: peacebuilding_spu.eventbrite.ca if they want to have access to the lunch buffet.

This conference is organized by the Conflict Research Centre of Saint Paul University and the Peace and Conflict Studies Association of Canada (PACS-CAN).

This conference will include both English and French presentations.

 

GRADUATE STUDENT SYMPOSIUM AT SAINT PAUL UNIVERSITY

Contemporary Conflict: Themes and Challenges

Friday, April 27, 2018

The Conflict Research Centre invites you to the second annual Graduate Student Symposium at Saint Paul University, which will be held on Friday, April 27, 2018. This event is organized by the students themselves, with technical and logistical support from the CRC.

As Conflict Studies builds momentum as an academic discipline with practical applications and potential to influence policy, the symposium’s theme seeks to explore contemporary developments in this intriguing and significant field of study. Topics related to the symposium theme will include critical reviews of traditional analytical conflict frameworks and theories; emerging dimensions of conflict such as the environment, human security, multiculturalism, and ideology; and the development of Conflict Studies as an academic discipline.

This event will be bilingual, but without simultaneous interpretation.
