Conferences and Events

The International Peace Research Association (IPRA) has been pursuing interdisciplinary research into the most pressing issues related to sustainable peace around the world since 1964.  


The association’s bi-annual conference is a major international event, including panel sessions and involving participants from more than 50 countries. Previous conferences have been held in Australia, South Africa, Finland, Korea and Hungary, Turkey, Sierra Leone and India. The next conference will take place in 2021, in Nairobi, Kenya. The regional associations organize their own conventions.
