Columbia International Affairs Online: Working Papers

Cornell University Peace Studies Program


The Peace Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program devoted to research and teaching on the problems of war and peace, arms control and disarmament, and more generally, instances of collective violence. Founded in 1970 with the support of the University’s Center for International Studies and the Program on Science, Technology and Society, the Program’s focus has evolved with changes in the world. In addition to its long-standing attention to arms control issues, particularly nuclear proliferation, the Program is engaged in a conversation on the future of the international security agenda in the post-Cold-War World. The Program is distinguished by its thoroughly interdisciplinary character and its emphasis on long-term policy issues. Both are essential for the Program’s objective of investigating the intellectual foundations of security and the preservation of peace.
