The Peace Conference and Peace BAR Festival have contributed to spread of peace research, peace education and peace movement around the world. The Global Academy of Future Civilization regularly holds academic conferences in order to "establish common values and put forth new plans for humanity and for the global community." Our debate on current events is always grounded in introspection concerning humanity, civilization and history. We promote a discourse about alternatives for civilization, and provide a platform for exchanges and collaborative research on modern societal phenomena in politics, economics, society, culture, and science by scholars and stakeholders across the globe.
