Peace Communication Research and Scholarship Opportunities in Related Disciplines and Forums.
Walker, Gregg B.
A number of academic and professional organizations offer peace communication scholars opportunities for cross-disciplinary dialogue. These include the: Consortium of Peace Research, Education, and Development (COPRED); Peace Studies Association; International Peace Research Association; Peace Science Society (International); International Studies Association; and International Association of Conflict Management. In addition to academic organizations, specialized conferences which may interest peace communication researchers are regularly listed in the "COPRED Peace Chronicle." A variety of academic journals appear receptive to interdisciplinary peace studies work, including peace communication scholarship. These include: "Peace and Change", a Journal of Peace Research, Norway's"Journal of Peace Research" and "Bulletin of Peace Proposals,""International Journal on World Peace,""International Studies Quarterly,""Internatonal Journal of Conflict Management," Canada's "Peace Research," Australia's "Pacific Research," and Sweden's "Bulletin of Peace Research." Major issues and contexts of peace and conflict generate other publications which can be identified. The "Peace Research Abstracts Journal" also provides the peace scholar with a unique source of information. A few of the professional enrichment opportunities for peace communication scholars include the: University of California Institute on Global Conflict and Cooperation's Summer Seminar, MIT/Harvard Program, Five College Program in Peace and World Security Studies, University of Wisconsin's Center for International Cooperation and Security Studies, and University of Hawaii's Pacific Peace Seminar. Peace communication scholars can play an active role in campus-wide peace education by teaching peace courses, working to establish a peace studies program, and incorporating communication courses into peace studies curricula.
