Mission Statement

The International Journal of Conflict & Reconciliation is the official journal of the University of Missouri-Columbia Peace Studies Program supported by the College of Arts and Science. It is a peer-reviewed interdisciplinary journal that seeks to further debate on the pursuit of peace in a non-violent manner. As a transformational forum, the International Journal of Conflict & Reconciliation aims to link all relevant areas of inquiry: the sciences, social sciences, humanities, policy analysis, environmental studies, gender studies, etc., to the quest for peace. The editors welcome research and theoretical articles, as well as activists' reports and book reviews that further global discussion on the nature of peace and its relevance to social and economic justice.
