      BRIDGING DIVIDES: EUROPEAN PEACE ARCHITECTURE OF INTEGRATION AND
      ENGAGEMENT
      6th EuPRA bi-annual Congress, 23-25 July 2009, TIRANA


      European Peace Research Association (EuPRA), the European affiliate
      of International Peace Research Association (IPRA) in cooperation
      with Faculty of Social Sciences, European University of Tirana,
      Albania is currently accepting submissions for its 6th bi-annual
      Congress to take place on 23-25 July 2009.

      Historically, Europe has experienced splits and divisions that have
      created its unique and shared history and culture. As to Western
      Europe, it is evident that the process of integration that was
      initiated in economic terms, found its political momentum after 1989
      with the unification of Germany, the dismantling of the Warsaw Pact
      and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in the early 1990s. The
      integration that extended eastwards is evident not only in figures
      but also in political terms. However, the future of an integrated
      Europe and its identity face two challenges: the future of EU
      institutions and functioning, and the issue of enlargement towards
      Southeast Europe. The conference aims at promoting discussion of both
      strategic and ethical questions surrounding issues of peace,
      integration, security, and justice, while committed to balanced
      discussions of diverse perspectives on division and engagement. We
      are most interested in the cultural and political issues surrounding
      peace and integration occurring between nations and peoples. We
      invite papers on topics such as war, peace, global cooperation,
      domestic violence, and interpersonal conflict resolution; including
      questions of military and political security, the global and European
      economy, and global and European environmental issues.

      Submissions are welcome from political and social sciences, and
      related disciplines. Our intentions are to welcome scholars from a
      wide range of interests within the academic community and educated
      members of the larger public. Doctoral students are also invited to
      submit proposals for papers to be delivered at the conference. Papers
      should be intended for a wide scholarship, though following academic
      standards in quality and style. Original papers presented at the
      Congress will be published.
