A CORDIAL INVITATION
In pursuit of " the need for continual support to the further strengthening of the global movement to promote the Culture of Peace", as envisaged by the United Nations, the Canadian Peace Research Association (CPRA) is pleased to invite you to its 2015 conference to be held at the University of Ottawa, Canada, to be held during 3-5, June, 2015. This conference is part of the 84th Congress initiated by the Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences (CFHSS). The University of Ottawa- the Congress host, is the largest bilingual university in the world, and ranks amongst the top 2% of global universities. At Congress 2015, scholars will gather under the aegis of nearly 70 associations representing a rich spectrum of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity and leadership.
The CPRA conference, as a constituent of Congress 2015, hopes to offer a welcoming milieu for social scientists, other scholars and peace advocates to present their research and influence future Peace Reasearch.
The 2015 CPRA conference will also be part of the year-long global activities in the aftermath of the United Nations High Level Forum on The Culture of Peace ( UN General Assembly Resolution 68/125 on "Follow-up to the Declaration and Programme of Action on a Culture of Peace ") convened by the President of the 68th General Assembly, His Excellency John W. Ashe, and addresed by the UN Secretary General, His Excellency Ban Ki-moon. The ambassadors of a large number of Member- States, including the Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, and the representatives of the UN system entities (e.g., UNESCO, WHO, ECOSOC), civil society including NGOs took part in the High Level Segment General Debate. I had the distinct honour of representing a global scientifists' organization, and, the CPRA.
"The Congress 2015 theme 'Capital Ideas' invites us to reflect on the power of ideas: ideas captivate our hearts and minds, ideas connect people and ignite discussions and debates, ideas create knowledge and spark discoveries". The theme also relates to the location of this year's Congress host - the national capital of Canada- OTTAWA- the seat of Canadian federal government, and of several national agencies, as the home of embassies, and of a large number of international organizations. The Congress theme acts as a unifying concept that bridges the multiple association conference programs together."
And, therefore, individual papers and panels in Peace Research, especially the ones that havenational and international significance, are invited from ALL DISCIPLINES and PROFESSIONS.
