NEPS Lecture


Established by the Network of European Peace Scientists in 2014, the NEPS lecture is an honor given to a NEPS Member who distinguished herself or himself for her or his research activities in the domain of Peace Science.

Every year, the Steering Committee chooses the lecturer among the NEPS community and invite her or him to give the lecture in a plenary session at the Jan Tinbergen European Peace Science Conference. The NEPS lecture is intended to make a significant and groundbreaking contribution to the conference.

Eventually, the lecturer is invited to publish his speech on the special issue of Peace Economics, Peace Science and Public Policy that collects a selection of the proceedings of the conference.
