https://ii.umich.edu/cmenas/news-events/events.detail.html/60785-14963968.htmlIslamic Peace Studies Conference. The Abode of Peace: Spirituality and Harmony in Islam

This conference explores the spiritual dimension of peace in Islam. Negative peace has been defined as the absence of violent conflict and concerns security arrangements. Positive peace has been defined as actions, policies, and attitudes that promote peace. Our concern here is with positive peace, and with its inner manifestations, in affect, attitude and personal behavior. Sufism has been a major site of such peace-related themes, but they appear in other arenas of Islamic practice as well.
