    15th International Conference

    Conflict Prevention and Peace Management

About the Conference

The 15th Annual International Conference is scheduled to be hosted on 11th to 13th July, 2024 on the broad theme of Peace Economics, Peace Science Conflict Management and Development in Bangalore, in close association with the UNESCO Chair of Grenoble Ecole De Management, France, European SPES Institute, Belgium, Emeritus Professor Manas Chatterji from Binghamton University, State University of New York, South Asian Alliance of Disaster Research Institutes (SAADRI), Association of Management Development Institutions in South Asia (AMDISA), Globethics South Asia Centre and Mahatma Gandhi Center for Conflict Prevention and Management, ABBSSM. With this conference, ABBSSM hopes to bring attention to the role of ethics and peace and contribute to the understanding for the global common good.

The action on ethical and peace processes is more prudent today than ever. Human existence and development are in question due to mounting conflicts in each region of the world as there is a lack of consciousness representing embedded ethical behaviour. From America to Australia and India to Europe there is a conflict story happening every second internally or externally. Terrorizing humanity has become rampant and life is at risk. The conference is an effort to create a more ethical, sustainable and peaceful world. A key question for the Conference was what needs to be done to reach to the development target set by National and International Economic Forums and how peace will enable this development.

Publication opportunity is available for selected papers in Scopus and ABDC listed journals at addional journal fee . Last conference abstracts were published as conference proceedings in ISBN book. The selected papers are being published as part of edited book with Emerald Publishing

The annual international conference is held under the aegis of the Mahatma Gandhi International Research Centre for Conflict Prevention and Management.
