Sustainable progress; sustainable futures
Concepts of peace and progress are clashing on both practical and ideological fronts, challenging communitarian and collectivist beliefs, as much as they present challenges to liberal constructions of human life and individual peace. What is the significance of these dynamic intersections as we witness the expansion of peace and conflict studies; justice studies; public health and policy; and critical theories
How are ways of knowing and sense-making affected as paradigms continue to shift toward grappling with the existential question of what comes after we choose to fully inhabit sustainability as a value, ethic, goal, and process? Prospective presenters should submit a proposal (approx. 300 words) to the Journal by April 15, 2023.
The proposal should convey the findings, methodology (if applicable), and contributions of the study to the field of peace and conflict resolution. Qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-methods studies, as well as empirically-grounded practitioner perspectives, are welcomed.
