Cultural violence refers to the aspects of a culture that can be used to legitimize direct or structural violence. Cultural violence limits our possibilities to imagine peaceful forms of living by normalizing direct and structural violence. Thus, to understand the causes of violence it is necessary to unmask the discourses that make it acceptable. This year’s CPP conference invites submissions on the following topics (however, we welcome all papers relevant to the mission of the CPP): 

-The nature of cultural violence

-Manifestation of cultural violence in different domains (race, ethnicity, gender, class, nationality, religion)
