Past Conferences

The students of the Undergraduate Program in Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame have been organizing the annual Notre Dame Student Peace Conference for over two decades. Access to the website for last year's conference is still available using the links below.

We are also working to digitize the archives of all the past conferences, all the way back to the earliest one. We will add this information as it becomes available, so please visit from time to time to view our progress and learn more about our history!
