Peace & Change: A Journal of Peace Research

This scholarly journal is co-published by PJSA and the Peace History Society. The journal features articles related to the creation of a peaceful, just, and humane society.

Peace & Change seeks to transcend national, disciplinary, and other arbitrary boundaries while building bridges between peace research, education, and activism. The journal includes articles on a wide variety of topics related to peace and justice organizing around the world, conflict resolution, nonviolence, internationalism, race and gender issues affecting peacemaking and peacebuilding, cross cultural studies, globalization and economic development.
