The aim of the Peace Studies Section of the International Studies Association (PSS/ISA) is to seek a better understanding of the causes of war and violence and of the conditions of peace in the international system. To this end, the Peace Studies Section links scholars of various disciplines and methodologies, develops, encourages, and disseminates research, and facilitates research-based teaching in peace and conflict studies.

PSS/ISA encourages cooperative relationships with other sections and regions of ISA and other professional and scholarly organizations that share its interests. Any ISA member sharing the purposes of the Section is encouraged to become a member of PSS/ISA.
