The Eurasian Peace Science Network (EPSN) is an independent, non-profit network of scholars that seeks to promote regional and global peace through increased understanding of the causes and consequences of political violence, conflict, peace, and war. To advance its goals the EPSN encourages rigorous research and seeks to connect scholars who study conflict, broadly defined, in the Eurasian and Middle Eastern regions and the world. The EPSN avoids social, religious, or national bias and does not promote political action or polemical discussion.
Membership is free and open to anyone located anywhere in the world who shares the goals of the Eurasian Peace Science Network. Members will receive periodic updates of EPSN-related events, including those regarding the annual Eurasian Peace Science conference, and we will seek to keep members informed of issues related to peace research. Members are encouraged to use the Network to disseminate peace research related news and events.To become a member click here.
