The Center for Peace and Violence Prevention (CPVP) and the Conflict Studies Center (CSC, Babes-Bolyai University, Romania) invite NGOs and civil society actors, activists, and policymakers to share light on the impact of their work and the communities they serve. We equally invite researchers, scholars, practitioners, students, doctoral, and postdoctoral candidates to share their recent scholarly work, observations, and field experiences, in a virtual conference on global security and peace. Proposals from professionals outside the humanitarian and academic fields are highly encouraged.
About the Conference
The International Symposium on Security and Peace (ISSP) is a CPVP forum where actionable knowledge is shared to address the human suffering caused by violent and non-violent conflicts, climate catastrophes, diseases, and the results of human decisions, what governments do and fail to do. It serves as a bridge that connects policymakers, academics, and change-makers who have made significant contributions to their communities through fortitude and moral courage. ISSP is a safe space for those seeking to raise awareness or wanting to share their work and experience. To prevent, we must know, and as we know, we must learn to unlearn. ISSP helps us learn from a diverse scientific community and from frontline actors seeking common solutions to the issues that affect vulnerable peoples, groups, and communities.
