The Business and Economics of Peace

There is a need to focus greater attention on the interrelationships between business, peace, and economics and to emphasize the value in looking at these issues from multiple disciplines and perspectives.

The Institute for Economics of Peace and American University’s Kogod School of Business will host the 2015 “Business and Economics of Peace” conference in Washington D.C., from 10th till the 11th of April.

The conference brings together academics, practitioners, graduates and advance undergraduates from a variety of disciplines including business, public policy, international relations, economics and statistics.

The four major themes of the conference are:

Economics, business and peace

Measuring peace

The analysis and management of risk

Resilient businesses, resilient societies: promoting positive peace

Download the program.

The best papers from the conference will be selected and published in Greenleaf Publishing’s journal Business, Peace and Sustainable Development, the first journal dedicated to the mutual contribution of business and peace.
