The search for peace is longstanding. And yet, the concept remains elusive. Most probably the reason is simple, namely that peace is never fully achieved, it is not an end-point, but rather a constant process of negotiation among different actors regarding the terms of their relationships in a myriad of different arenas.
In this conference the aim is to investigate peace as a process and the various forms in which it has been conceptually framed and empirically practiced. In order to do so, the research objectives of the conference are twofold:
(i) to explore the ways in which specific approaches to peace are (or are not) the outcome of dominant scholarly work and policy agendas; thus conversely
(ii) to examine and investigate how peace is constructed as a concrete and common aspiration that shapes social interactions in daily life.
