The first major international Varieties of Peace Conference took place in Jakarta, Indonesia on 22–24 October 2019 and was arranged in cooperation with the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The purpose of the conference was to bring together peace scholars, in particular those working in the region and scholars who focus on peace in the region, and discuss ongoing research. The conference hosted around 50 participants, including the Varieties of Peace Swedish Core Group and International Advisory Board. We welcomed contributions from junior as well as more senior researchers. The conference consisted of keynote speakers, round-table discussions and parallel paper panels.
We welcomed theoretical pieces as well as case studies which took on the core research questions of the program. We also encouraged papers which took on peace as a situation, peace as a relation and peace as an idea. In particular we welcomed peace research that engages with cases in Asia.
