We are pleased to invite you to the 2021 Annual Conference of the Canadian Peace Research Association - Association canadienne de recherché pour la paix (CPRA - ACRP). The CPRA - ACRP Conference, as a constituent of Congress 2021, hopes to offer a welcoming milieu for peace researchers, social scientists, teachers, as well as activists and advocates, in order to present their research as well as influence peace studies.
The CPRA – ACRP Conference is part of the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences, which promotes research, and teaching for “the advancement of an inclusive, democratic, and progressive society.” With a membership now comprising over 160 universities, colleges, and scholarly associations, the Federation or “Congress” represents a diverse community of 91,000 researchers and graduate students across Canada.
The Federation organizes Canada’s largest academic gathering, the Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, bringing together each year more than 8,000 participants. In 2021, it is expected that thousands of scholars will gather under the aegis of a virtual platform using Zoom showcasing approximately 47 academic associations representing a rich spectrum of disciplines in education, social sciences, social work, peace research and other academic disciplines. Congress represents a unique showcase of scholarly excellence, creativity, and leadership.
