This is the webpage of Pax et Bellum, a student association of the Department of Peace and Conflict Research at Uppsala University.

Our purpose is to promote interest in and the study of peace and conflict issues, as well as create opportunities for interaction both within the department and with anyone else that has an interest in the field of peace and conflict.

As of a few years back, we are mainly run by the master students at the department, who also make-up the main bulk of the active members. However, we are an organisation without any religious or political affiliation open to everyone who has an interest in the subject.

Take a look around. You can look up our up-coming activities, sign-up for one of our activity groups or contact us for more information.

Again, välkommen

What we do


Pax Talks

Once a month (usually), we set up little talks with people who have something interesting to share about peace and conflict. Think TED Talk, but locally.


Pax et Bellum is making two gasques – Uppsala traditional dinner parties – happening this year. Out very own Let Them Have Gasque and in collaboration with UPaD and the department: the annual Peace Gasque.

Career Day

This year, Pax has joined Uppsala Association of International Affairs (UF), UPaD and Uppsala Politicesstuderande (UPS) to jointly organising a Career Day in 2016. If you want to be a part of the process, contact our Vice-Chair.

Crisis Simulation

Once every year, we organise a roleplay-ish Crisis Simulation. Talk to the Activity Group to make this year’s edition happen.

Theme Week

Each year we organise a theme week. Join the Activity Group to help out with this year’s edition. We want YOU!

Pax et Bellum Journal

The Pax et Bellum Journal is an academic journal published jointly by Pax et Bellum, UPaD and the department. If you want to be a part of it: contact the Journal Group.
