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.
Coming up: 6th Bi-annual meeting, 28-30 August 2017, Amsterdam:
The Making of Peace, Conflict and Security. Dynamics of Inclusion and Exclusion.
For those interested in convening a panel, here is our call for panel proposals (deadline January 15): click here to download the Call for Panels.
In 2015, PACSA convened its 5th bi-annual meeting, “Im/mobilities: Products and generators of conflict,” on 2-4 September 2015 in Frankfurt.
The conference program can be found here: PACSA 2015
Prior to the summit in Frankfurt, the bi-annual international conference meeting was held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on 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.
