Short description

In the current scale of globalization, peace becomes a national and international responsibility that requires coordinated action from both national and international agents. The achievement of peace is not only the absence of war, but it also requires a process of positive transformation of political, economic and social structures.

Description

This is the First Workshop of the Center for European Studies of the Epoka University and will bring together in one platform academicians, policy makers, practitioners and Ph.D. students focused on peace studies and welcomes proposals that:

  1. Present research works assessing the status of peace politics in the Western Balkan region especially in a time when peace itself is a contested concept and each society internalizes and implements it according to its own social, political and economic objectives
  1. Analyze ways of spreading peace messages in the Western Balkan Region through political institutions and other channels of communications to make it part of a general effort to change society and to create a peace culture.
  1. Assess the impact of European Integration on peace politics for the region.

With this focus in mind, organisers warmly welcome paper submissions and presentation proposals from across the world and from a wide spectrum of disciplines and perspectives.
