Overview and metadata sections

The Peace and Justice Studies Association (PJSA) is a non-profit organization formed in 2001 as a result of a merger of the Consortium on Peace Research, Education and Development (COPRED) and the Peace Studies Association (PSA). The PJSA is dedicated to bringing together academics, K-12 teachers and grassroots activists to explore alternatives to violence and share visions and strategies for peacebuilding, social justice, and social change. The group also serves as a professional association for scholars in the field of peace and conflict resolution studies, and is a North American affiliate of the International Peace Research Association. Together with the Peace History Society, the PJSA edits the scholarly journal, Peace and Change.

The Swarthmore College Peace Collection is the official repository for these papers/records.
