Conference Title: Communication, Peace and Security in the 21st Century

Date: March 15, 2016
Location: Atlanta GA, USA

Abstract deadline: October 16, 2015

Two overlapping trends highlight the first decade and a half of the 21st Century: information abundance and the growing ubiquity of mobile communication devices. While it is often claimed that these developments have facilitated political uprisings and revolutions, there is much debate over whether they have increased the world’s peace and security.  This conference explores this important question at the international, state and individual levels.

Confirmed speakers: Professors Robert Entman, Steven Livingston and Phillip Seib.
