PhD Conference 2023

PRIS PhD Conference

Lund University, 29 Nov - 01 Dec, 2023.

Join us for the PRIS 2023 PhD Conference from November 29 to December 1, 2023 in Lund! We aim to bring together PhDs based in Sweden working with peace and conflict related issues. We look forward to contributions from the fields of International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, Anthropology, Area Studies, Human Geography, Human Ecology, Sustainability Studies and more. There is no conference fee and we are planning to provide accommodation. Meals will be provided depending on the number of attendees. The conference is organized by PRIS and hosted by the Department of Political Science at Lund University.

Please submit a 150-200 word abstract under one of our four themes: military, security, and conflict; mediation and transitions; post conflict societies; new trends in peace research. These themes are meant to be broad and to allow for better feedback so please choose the theme that fits best, or choose 'no theme' and we will decide for you. We encourage idea papers and papers at any stage of the writing process, as we want this to be a low stress environment which allows you to get feedback and get to know other PhDs!

Please submit your papers by September 29, 2023, through the submission form.

Please email the Bibi Imre-Millei (, a PhD student helping to organize the conference, with any questions.
