The Institute for Economics and Peace and American University’s Kogod School of Business announce the inaugural conference on “Peace Metrics, Peace Economics, and the Role of Business,” co-hosted April 5-6, 2013 at American University in Washington, D.C. This multi-disciplinary conference will focus on analyzing conceptual frameworks for measuring peace, understanding the generalized determinants of peace, describing the economic benefits of a more peaceful society, and identifying the relationship between business and peace. The conference will connect academics and students from different conceptual and theoretical backgrounds, providing a forum for research presentations by selected graduate students, and presenting current research, practice, and ideas from established academics and practitioners. This forum aims to develop new ideas and thinking on this research, establish networks to sustain conversation and the exchange of ideas, and produce a new annual publication, Peace Metrics. The conference will convene graduate, advanced undergraduate students, and academics in the following areas of study: business, public policy, international relations, economics, and statistics, among others. Discussions and networking opportunities with practitioners will be included in the program.
