The Mridha International Institute of Peace & Happiness (MIIPH) presents the First Annual Mridha International Peace Symposium, offering practical and inspirational content from community leaders and professionals from multiple disciplines in a collegiate setting. It may seem as if we are living in a time of chaos, but as MIIPH Founder Debasish Mridha, M.D. says, “Peace can be found everywhere. We just need to know how to find it.” This interactive symposium will explore peace within the four main quadrants of our lives: community, workplace, family, and the individual. The event culminates with the awarding of the Mridha International Fellow award.
The Mridha International Peace Symposium is seeking papers on peace and its effect on the individual, the family, the community, and the planet. The Symposium welcomes submissions that seek to illuminate the discussion and evolving perspectives on peace, nonviolence, and conflict resolution in contemporary society.
Submissions from professionals in the areas of philosophy, sociology, political science, psychology, and related disciplines are welcomed. Papers can explore ideologies related to peace within oneself (private peace); between family members and other close relationships (personal peace); at school, work, and the community (public peace); and among all cultures and backgrounds (planetary peace). New areas of study, as well as re-evaluation of established areas of study, are welcomed and encouraged.
