Facing the Dangers of 21st Century Great Power War

3 May 2014, New York, USA




A conference on the century of the World War I


This conference will provide an opportunity for reflection and discussion on the world wars of the last century, and about the risks of great power war today.  The conference will be held alongside the 2014 preparatory committee meeting for the 2015 Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference. We hope as well to spark discussion and awareness about the dangers posed by nuclear weapons in the context of new rounds of great power competition and arms racing that appear to be in the offing. 


The conference will bring together activists and academics with knowledge and experience relevant to emerging dangers in key regions, from wars, resource conflicts and profound ongoing political realignments in the Middle East, to growing tensions in the Western Pacific over territory and resources, as well as the U.S. strategic “pivot” to Asia.  Speakers will address the risks of great power war, the implication of those dangers for peace and disarmament efforts, and the kinds of movements we will need to build to forge a path to a more peaceful world.

World War I: Dissent, Activism, & Transformation

The program committee invites paper proposals that focus on Dissent, Activism, & Transformation in the World War I Era.  The First World War was a watershed event in modern world history and among the most significant events in the 20th century.  The war triggered dissent and activism; and it had an impact on political activism, social reform, and cultural expression.  In turn, these developments transformed society, politics, and culture.  This conference will explore the themes of dissent, activism, and transformation during the war and the immediate postwar era.
