PACSA was established as a network of the European Association of Social Anthropologists (EASA) in 2005. It draws together a network of scholars from all over Europe and beyond to facilitate co-operation and collaboration in the fields of peace and conflict studies in anthropology.
PACSA is coming together for the 5th bi-annual meeting, “Im/mobilities: Products and generators of conflict,” 2-4 September 2015, Frankfurt.

The last international conference meeting was held in August 2013 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The theme: “Crisis and Conflict”.
PACSA aims to advance the anthropological study of armed conflict and other forms of organised violence, processes of conflict resolution, post-conflict reconstruction and reconciliation, and related issues. Furthermore, PACSA seeks to broaden academic engagement with these areas of study across disciplinary boundaries, while also seeking to raise awareness about research outside of the academic sphere.
