What are the challenges for peace?  What can we hope for?

  • Political challenges for peace: authoritarianism, lawlessness, broken democracies, etc.
  • Environmental challenges: climate change, environmental justice, etc.
  • Social challenges: homelessness, poverty, domestic violence, insecurity
  • Personal challenges: hopelessness, resignation, bystander effect, etc.
  • Exemplars of nonviolence
  • Exemplars of moral courage
  • Successful nonviolent movements
  • The role of hope in the philosophy of peace
  • The need for solidarity, love, and other virtues

We welcome submissions from undergraduates, graduate students, and professional philosophers, as well as from a range of fields including philosophy, law, public policy, business, history, religious studies, political science, social science, or related fields. Submissions from teachers, researchers, or practitioners are also welcome, particularly insofar as those presentations could complement the theme of the conference. We also especially welcome proposals from women and minorities, and are committed to making this year’s conference inclusive and welcoming to all.

**There will be a $100 prize for the best graduate student paper**
