Call For Papers

Online International Conference organized by the Archbishop Desmond Tutu Centre for War and Peace Studies and SEARCH Centre of Liverpool Hope Business School, Liverpool Hope University, Hope Park Campus, 26th June 2023

The second decade of the century has been marked by interrelated crises seriously disrupting the social fabric of societies, and the possibilities of peace and development across the globe. The aftermath of COVID-19 pandemic, the war in Ukraine and ongoing conflicts in other parts of the world, continuing global warming at unprecedented levels and economic hardship have become interlocking crises hampering the prospects for recovery, peaceful coexistence and sustainable development.

Such crises have posed unprecedented challenges to peace and development framed by the 2030 agenda. The aim of this event is to explore current global challenges from an interdisciplinary perspective, reflecting on current and potential spaces for construction of collective meanings and alternatives and the voices shaping them. We will receive papers from scholars, practitioners and activists on all the dimensions of development and peace including, among others:

The role of international organizations, the UN global governance structures and the UN (climate) Adaptation Fund
Dynamics of communication and language
The role of education
Historical and contemporary perspectives
The role of civil society, social movements, the private sector, churches and other civic actors
The role of culture and the arts
The role of security institutions broadly conceived
Please send abstracts of maximum 300 words (word format) for presentations lasting no more than 20 minutes, together with a title for the paper, a maximum of 5 keywords and a biography of 150 words including name, title, institutional affiliation, contact information and technical requirements where applicable to by May 1, 2023.

Registration free of charge for the Conference will open soon after the call for papers have been closed.

For all enquiries, please contact Dr Catalina Montoya at
