PhD Conference 2019
After several years without a conference, PRIS (Peace Research in Sweden) is happy to
announce a new PhD-level Peace Research conference, this year to be held in
Gothenburg, September 5-6, 2019.
We aim to bring together Sweden-based early career scholars, foremost PhD students,
who conduct research on Peace and Conflict-related issues. We are looking forward to
contributions from International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology,
Psychology, Area Studies, Communications, and other disciplines.
Please complete the online form to submit a proposal for the PRIS Doctoral Student
Conference 2019. The deadline is March 15, 2019. You can find the submission form
We welcome both paper and panel proposals on the various theoretical and
substantive challenges related to Peace and Conflict research, as well as on other
pressing issues in the field. Panel sessions will be 90 minutes long and will consist of
4-5 papers, and one chair plus discussant. Panel proposals may specify papers but
should also keep slots open for additional papers.
Notification of acceptance will be sent out by the end of April 2019. There will be no
conference fee. Conference lunch and snacks are covered. We are also in the process of
applying for additional funds. As soon possible, we will update participants about
potential additional funds for accommodation and/or travel.
This conference is organized by PRIS and hosted by the School of Global Studies at the
University of Gothenburg. For questions please contact the organizers through
