As the war system keeps societies in a state of permawar, we have reached a stage in human history at which we can say with confidence that there are better and more effective alternatives. Of course we know the question: "You say you are against war, but what's the alternative?" This event will develop answers to that question, building on World Beyond War's publication A Global Security System: An Alternative to War. (A second edition will be published before the conference and we welcome all input!)

The event will feature sessions focused on such topics as:

  • Strategies to End War
  • Ending War and Patriarchy
  • Remaking the Mass Media for Peace
  • Capitalism and transition to Peace Economy
  • The Racism of War
  • Promoting Peace Begins With Abolishing War
  • War Isn't Working, and It Isn't Necessary: Why we need complete abolition, even of humanitarian wars
  • Diplomacy, Aid, and Nonviolent Peacekeeping and Protection
  • Disarmament, and Abolishing Nuclear Weapons
  • Closing Bases
  • Protecting the Environment from War by Ending War
  • Changing War Culture to Peace Culture
  • International Law. Can War Makers Be Held Accountable? Can We Achieve Truth and Reconciliation?
  • Demonstrations, Direct Action, Resistance and Counter-Recruitment
  • Untold History of the United States
  • Nonviolent Action: Getting to Work
  • Bringing United States into the International Criminal Court
  • Resistance, Ending the Draft, Countering Recruitment, Creating Free College
  • Abolishing Nuclear Weapons
  • Freeing Palestine
  • Young People Organizing for Peace
  • Improving the Alternative Global Security Strategy
  • Building Friendship Between the United States and Russia
