IPRA Japan Conference 2012

 IPRA
IPRA Japan Conference 2012
November 24 - 28, 2012
Deadline for proposals: June 1, 2012

This year, the International Peace Research Association (IPRA) is convening its bi-annual conference in Tsu City, Mie Prefecture, Japan. Since 2004, IPRA has included an Arts and Peace commission which facilitates networking and sharing of information among artists, peacebuilders, researchers and educators throughout the world. This year, we will be exploring the following themes: music and conflict transformation; visual art and peacebuilding; music therapy; documentation, assessment and evaluation of work at the nexus of art, culture and peacebuilding; the contributions of theatre and ritual to the creative transformation of conflict; and developing a global infrastructure to support the peacebuilding/arts field. We welcome proposals for sessions on these and other topics, including initiatives in Africa, the Middle East, South and Central America, Indigenous communities, Asia and Pacific regions, among others. Those interested in proposing individual presentations or sessions should submit an application as soon as possible, but no later than May 1. Please see the submission guidelines and schedule.

In most years there is a little, but VERY little, financial assistance for participants from non-OECD countries. We encourage colleagues who wish to participate to mark the November dates in your calendar, and seek resources from your institutions or other sources available to you. Please check the IPRA and conference website for updated information. 

Cynthia Cohen and Maria Elena Lopez Vinader, co-convenors, Arts and Peace Commission, IPRA
