The security has always been the most fundamental requirement of the human being for a happy and prosperous life. Peace and peaceful coexistence are the preconditions to realize the sustaining security when the conflicts nurture the violence, war and annihilation. The felicitous welfare in the contemporary world, then, won’t be achieved unless the sustainable peace and security is guaranteed. On the contrary, the war and violence shatters the human life with destroying the blessing environment and standing against God’s tradition of permanent creation and production.

West Asia and North Africa holds the oldest global civilizations when they currently suffer a considerable amount of the world armed conflicts. The region is even potential for the much widespread conflicts and war fronts due to the present geopolitical disputes and the stockpiles of arms. We believe, then, the academicians and social activists have the mission to take a more responsible approach to consolidate peace and resolve the conflicts. The Faculty of World Studies hosts the permanent secretariat of the International Conference on Peace and Conflict Resolution (ICPCR) as it convenes its first conference to account for this social mission.

ICPCR also aims to:

  1. To make a vibrant forum for  the Iranian and international experts in peace and conflict resolution to exchange ideas and share experiences.
  2. To provide an enabling environment for scholars to provide their genius ideas and produce a constructive academic literature in peace and conflict resolution.
  3. To make an efficient network of the experienced experts and the interested young scholars in peace and conflict resolution.
