"Think Peace, Talk Peace, Cultivate Peace"

In a world characterized by the growing instability and division between individuals and between groups in a society, the interest towards peace building is globally increasing. Deep social changes and challenges especially generated by technological innovations not only trigger us to think more creatively about the volatile future, also shows us that promoting and building peace in all fields of life is fundamental. We strongly believe that making the connection between peace-building and communication helps citizens all over the world to enhance their level of understanding, tolerance, and empathy to each other. It is, therefore, necessary to gain a better grasp of the theories and practices on building peace and communicating peace, to analyze the role of communication and conventional (as well as social) media in peace building, and to map the emerging problems and challenges for communication, media and peace journalism research.
