The International Center for Research and Decision Support, a unit of the International Federation of Catholic Universities, has formally launched a Peace Studies Network focused on interdisciplinary research on international relations, conflicts, and strategies for conflict prevention and sustainable peacebuilding. The Network will host its first Master Class at the Université Catholique d’Angers from March 27 to 29, 2019, on the theme of “Human Rights and Armaments." The Network will operate with relationships with Council of Europe, OSCE, UNESCO, ESOSOC, and the Catholic Peacebuilding Network. It currently has events planned through 2018 and 2019 in Albania, France, Belgium, and India. See the Network's presentation document for further details.
