PEACE Distinguished Scholar Award

This award was created by the PEACE Section to honor an individual in the field of peace and conflict studies and, ideally, a record of service to the ISA.

If you or your organization is interested in supporting this award please contact Landon Hancock. It was only through the generous donations of many supporters that we were able to begin this tradition, and it will only by through continued support that we will be able to show our appreciation for the many distinguished scholars who created and nurtured our field.
