Since the dawn of man, conflicts have arisen that have sparked civil unrest, fighting and killing. Wars have been started over religious conflicts, fuel, and even sporting events. It is the aim of this topic and conference to research and discuss the many aspects of war and peace. Some of the areas that we will be looking at are:

* causes of war
* types of warfare
*war crimes
*media’s input and output – effects of and on journalism
*musical, theatrical, and artistic influences of war
*virtual war
*resolving conflicts
*war machines
*the business of war

This 2nd Global Session on War and Peace is of interest to teachers, students, scholars, psychologists, legal professionals, political activists, historians, and business professionals; it affects everyone at some point in their lives. You are cordially invited to submit your abstract and subsequent paper on the subject of war. As this is such a vast subject, your abstract can touch on any subject matter that deals with war in general.
