Call For Papers

The International Center for Ethno-Religious Mediation (ICERM), New York, is inviting scholars, researchers, graduate students, experts, practitioners, policy makers, representatives of indigenous peoples and faith communities to submit proposals - abstracts or full papers - for the 2022 International Conference on Ethnic and Religious Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding.

To increase our understanding of ethnic, racial and religious conflicts in countries around the world, the conference will consider submissions from multidisciplinary fields of study and practice. Qualitative, quantitative or mixed methods research studies from university scholars and researchers are accepted. Case studies, lessons learned, success stories, policy analysis or design, and best practices from policy makers, practitioners, religious leaders and indigenous peoples are also accepted.


Proposal for a Panel

University scholars, researchers, policy makers, practitioners, religious leaders, representatives from think tank organizations as well as representatives of indigenous peoples can submit joint proposals for a special panel discussion on any topic that explores the theme of the conference.

For the 2022 conference, we welcome proposals that examine or explore the understanding of any type, case or aspect of ethnic conflict, racial conflict or religious conflict through one or all of these lenses: analytical (i.e., theoretical analysis); research (research methods, evaluations, or assessments); and resolution (practical solutions, best practices or lessons learned).

Exemplary abstracts or full papers shall not only bridge theory, method and practice, but must include findings and recommendations designed to further understanding and inform practical application.
