The Asia-Pacific Peace Research Association (APPRA) is delighted to announce a regional conference of scholars, educators and peace-builders. From a peace research perspective, the Asia-Pacific is rich with stories of peoples who choose to engage deadly conflicts with nonviolent alternatives. The APPRA 2013 in Bangkok, co-organized with Thammasat University, will mark the very first time APPRA peace researchers will explore peace research landscape with the theme of engaging deadly conflicts with nonviolent alternatives. We believe that by underscoring these nonviolent experiences in dealing with various types of deadly conflict, peace researchers could come up with a wealth of peace research knowledge that would meaningfully help mitigate deadly conflicts and foster peace in the Asia-Pacific. The following list is an example of sub-themes of the conference: border conflicts, ecological conflicts, ethnic conflicts, governance conflicts, nationalism and militarization, and just and peaceful regional order.

The length of the abstract should be less than 200 words. And the deadline for submitting the abstract is July 10, 2013. Please send your abstract to appra2013@gmail.com. Deadline for full papers will be identified at a later date.
