Networks: Peace and Conflict Studies in Anthropology Network
PACSA was established as an EASA network in 2005. It draws together a network of scholars from all over Europe and beyond to facilitate co-operation and collaboration in the fields of peace and conflict studies in anthropology. PACSA aims to advance the anthropological study of armed conflict and other forms of organized violence, processes of conflict resolution, post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation, and related issues. Furthermore, PACSA seeks to broaden academic engagement with these areas of study across disciplinary boundaries, and to raise awareness of this research outside of the academic sphere.

Our last bi-annual meeting was held in September 2011 when we organized a joint international conference with the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus. Our next international conference will be held in 28-30 August 2013 in Copenhagen, organized in collaboration with DIGNITY - Danish Institute against Torture and Global Refugee Studies, Aalborg University. Entitled Crisis and Conflict, the call for papers is now open.
