Peace and Reconciliation in Global Times

Call for Papers

Theme: Peace and Reconciliation in Global Times
Type: International Conference
Institution: Council for Research in Values and Philosophy (RVP)
  University of Karachi
Location: Karachi (Pakistan)
Date: 30.–31.7.2019
Deadline: 30.3.2019


Peace is an ultimate need of humanity. If we seek to promote peace
amongst diverse cultures and religions in these global times, we
should, first of all, understand the meaning of reconciliation and
then act accordingly. For reconciliation means absence or ending of
quarrels, conflicts, wars or hostilities through settlements and
agreements which brings the opposites together into peaceful
co-existence. Another sense of reconciliation resonates the classical
sense of honoring a promise, certain social norms, etc. The concept
of reconciliation implies both a situation of conflicts and
hostilities and a desire to restore a situation of calm, quite, order
and peace.

Therefore, any efforts of promoting reconciliation will lead to some
kind of peace. In this complex and pluralistic world what we need
urgently are ethical rules that work in situations of conflicts and
hostilities. These same moral rules should become laws of human peace
where peace really means peace.
