The conference is co-organized by SIPRI and Economists for Peace and Security. The conference program will include research papers selected based on the call for proposals, with a mix of plenary sessions and parallel workshop streams on particular research areas.

Volume 1, Number 1, published in spring of 1989, noted that our young organization had over 100 members in five countries. EPS now has over 1000 members in 52 countries. That first issue also announced our first international affiliate; today, there are EPS affiliates in 16 countries.
Over the last 25 years, our organization has brought you not only news of EPS, but also thought-provoking articles, sometimes devoting entire issues to specific topics.
While much has changed in the last 25 years, the need for rigorous economic peace research and substantive exploration of security issues remains.
In commemoration of this Silver Anniversary of the EPS Quarterly, all of our available newsletters from the past 25 years have been posted here.
