The European Peace Research Association (EuPRA) calls for its 9th Biennial Conference: THE FRAMING OF EUROPE: Peace Perspectives on Europe’s Future.
Peace in contemporary Europe is disturbed by political turmoil, civil wars and big-power intervention on Europe’s Southern and South-Eastern flanks, as well as in Europe’s close neighborhood. Europe is also struggling with unemployment, economic and regional disparity and poverty, as well as ethnic, religious and regional conflicts that threaten stability and peace inside Europe. There is also an increasing refugee crisis triggered by civil war, terrorism and interventionism, in Europe and the Middle East. Besides this, freedom of speech and free flow of information is also threatened by terrorism, by authoritarianism, and by securitization of politics. EuPRA 2015 invites to address these visible and invisible frameswith reference to sustainable peace.
