The Society for the Study of Peace, Conflict, and Violence is a growing organization consisting of psychologists, students, and professional affiliates from diverse disciplines and countries.

Our shared vision is the development of sustainable societies through the prevention of destructive conflict and violence, the amelioration of its consequences, the empowerment of individuals, and the building of cultures of peace and global community.

The Society was established in 1990 as the Division of Peace Psychology within the American Psychological Association, though belonging to APA is not required for belonging to the Division.
