The Network for Education and Research on Peace and Sustainability (NERPS) at Hiroshima University (Japan), and Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) (Thailand) will jointly host the 2nd edition of Hiroshima International Conference on Peace and Sustainability (HICPS) titled The NERPS Conference 2023 in Thailand from February 28 to March 3, 2023.
The NERPS Conference 2023 is a platform to facilitate continued inter- and trans-disciplinary research and policy conversations among students, researchers, and practitioners working on issues related to peace, sustainability, or their nexus. The conceptual and empirical linkages between peace and sustainability are widely recognized in academic and policy circles. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development confirms this recognition. However, much of the initiatives on peace and sustainability operate in silos, undermining the positive and mutually-reinforcing relationship between them. An enhanced integration of peace and sustainability component is imperative for addressing complex challenges that come with global transformations that are manifested environmentally, socially, politically, and economically across levels. It is, therefore, crucial to identify the pathways that enhance the peace-promoting potential of sustainability and the sustainability-promoting potential of peace.
The theme "Bridging Peace and Sustainability amidst Global Transformations" of this conference will focus on various pathways that bridge peace promotion and sustainable development.
At the time of submission, authors will be required to choose one of the three main topics (i.e., peace, sustainability, or their nexus) and one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) most relevant to their abstracts.The deadline for submitting abstracts is 30 October 2022: - Network for Education and Research on Peace and Sustainability (nerps.org)
