The International Association for Peace and Conflict Studies (IAPCS) is a forum for critical scholars, students and practitioners of peacebuilding to exchange ideas, keep in touch with each other and with developments in the field.

The Association will hold an Annual Conference (in Manchester or elsewhere) and will be linked with the new journal Peacebuilding. 

Besides peacebuilding, the Association will be of interest to those whose study and practice focuses on international peace-support operations, local agency and resistance, statebuilding tasks like transitional justice and the theories, ideologies and practices that underpin peacemaking.
