Second Call for Papers
24th Annual Conference of the German Peace Psychology Association
„Social Injustice and Conflict"
June 17-18, 2011
Department of Psychology, University of Marburg (Germany)
Understanding and changing the underlying mechanisms of social injustice and their relationship to social conflicts are core issues in Peace Psychology. Terrorism, warfare, normative and non-normative collective action, as well as other forms of intergroup conflict urge researchers to consider social injustice as a highly important factor. The aim of the conference is to bring together scholars from all fields relevant to Peace Psychology to discuss their current research on the antecedents, perceptions, and outcomes of social injustice for the various forms of contemporary conflicts.
Keynote Speaker: Fathali Moghaddam (Washington D.C.)
We invite submissions of empirical and theoretical papers from all fields of psychology, sociology, political science and other social sciences, which contribute to the field of social injustice and conflict. We also welcome submissions on other topics relevant to Peace Psychology. The conference language is English. In exceptional cases, it is also possible to submit presentations in German. Each presentation will be awarded 45 minutes, including questions and discussion. Submitted papers will be screened with regard to their general appropriateness and grouped with related papers into thematic sessions.
Please submit your abstract (250 words) to peacepsychology[at]staff.uni-marburg.de.
Please indicate a title of your presentation, names and affiliation of all authors, and an address of the presenting author. We will confirm your registration electronically. A small participation fee will be charged.
