The Centre for Conflict Studies invites the submission of proposals for its annual conference, to be held at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB, Canada, 14-15 October 2005.
The purpose of the conference theme is to answer the question: In what cases (if any), under what circumstances, and with what effects has sub-state terrorism ever exercised a decisive influence on the course of modern history? The kinds of impacts to be addressed in the conference papers could include causing: major inter-state wars; regional and/or global economic crises; major policy changes by important regional/global 'players'; the collapse of functioning states; or the emergence of a new state or government with major regional or global impacts. Proposals will also be considered for papers that show why certain terrorist groups, events or campaigns were unable to exercise a significant influence on global affairs. Following the conference, the papers will be edited into a proceedings for publication.
Please submit proposals (1-2 pgs single-spaced), with a brief biographical note, to The Centre for conflict Studies.
