Te Ao O Rongomaraeroa | the National Centre for Peace and Conflict Studies (NCPACS) Working Paper Series (or “the Series”) is an open access, student and community-run working paper series for peace and conflict-related research.
It provides a platform for groups and individuals to share their perspectives and contribute to discourse on topics related to peace and conflict prior to publication in a journal.
The Series is open for submissions from students, practitioners, activists, community members, and the general public. Submissions are especially welcome from tangata whenua, indigenous persons, persons from the global south, the LGBTQIA+ community, and members of communities affected by structural violence and conflict.
Submissions to the Series are invited on any subject related to peace and conflict studies, as well as practice-based research and reflection. All papers accepted for publication are subject to a review process by the NCPACS Working Paper Editorial Team. There is no intention to reject papers, as the team aims to work with the author to make the writing ready for publication.
