Our conference is intended as a forum where students can join in discussion with those who share their personal passion or academic interest in peacebuilding, social justice, and conflict transformation.

Interested students from any college or university around the world are invited to attend, regardless of whether they are presenting. Thanks to the sponsorship of the Kroc Institute, there is no registration fee to attend and participate.

However, given that this year’s conference will be hosted partly online in virtual format, all participants must register in advance in order to participate. General registration is now available and will remain open during the conference.

For years in which conference events are hosted on campus, transportation and lodging are the responsibility of each attendee. We encourage students to explore the funding options available at their own institutions to help with any remaining costs. For information about visiting the University of Notre Dame and the surrounding City of South Bend, please see our hotel and travel pages.

Students whose proposals are accepted will receive an invitation with more specific registration information. Organizations and groups that are interested in exhibiting at the conference should contact us directly to access exhibitor registration.
