2018 Student Peace Conference

Location: Hesburgh Center for International Studies

Peace Con

Toward Justpeace: Exploring the Intersections of Justice and Peace


As we endeavor to establish peace and envision a shared future with fewer harms against one another, we question how to most effectively address the conflict and violence of the past. We seek to understand how themes of justice can heal hurts of the past, promote positive peace in the present, and guide our actions in the future. Discussing how the principles of justice and peace interact with each other is pertinent for conversations about conflict and violence in communities and societies around the world, as well as in the United States.


The Notre Dame Student Peace Conference is an annual event organized by students for students. Its mission is to provide space for graduate and undergraduate students from all colleges and universities to engage in dialogue on important issues related to peacebuilding, global issues, and social justice.


Sponsored by the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies.
