Building Peace

An annual conference to explore 'Building Peace' from multidisciplinary perspectives held in Oxford. The 2012 conference was entitled, ‘Disciplines of Peace’. The 2012 conference themes included exploring different aspects of the field of peace studies: the relationship between academic research and the practice of peacemaking, peacebuilding and peacekeeping; the skills needed for these practices; the way in which established academic disciplines feed into our understanding of peace and peacebuilding; and the emerging discipline of peace studies itself. How can this area of study be further developed at Oxford?
