Symposium Call and Scope


War has been a constant aspect of human eras since ancient times. In fact, the idea of conflict as a means of achieving useful results has always been present in the history of evolution. Even if after the end of the Second World War when a new peaceful approach towards dispute resolution has been promoted by the most powerful nations in the world, tensions have become risen again in the last few decades, particularly in some territories of the world.

Since the outbreak of the Yugoslaw Wars and the end of the First Gulf War to name but a few, it is necessary to examine the themes and approaches studied in the field of War Studies and to offer a contribution towards a careful analysis of future scenarios.

We invite academics from different backgrounds, including but not limited to history, philosophy, law, politics, sociology, literature, religion, economics, art, geography, anthropology, psychology, war industry, military science and cyberscience.
