Selected Databases for Peace Movement History

A search in Omni, the library catalogue, includes journal articles, newspaper articles, reviews, and conference proceedings available through many, though not all of the library's electronic subscription databases. Omni is a great place to begin a search for peace and conflict studies resources.. However, if your research takes you very deeply into a topic, you will want to search databases such as the ones listed here.

For a nearly-comprehensive list of the databases available through the University of Waterloo, listed by subject area, see the Research Databases page.

  • Peace & Change (journal of the Peace History Society)
    Publishes scholarly and interpretive articles on the achievement of a peaceful, just, and humane society. International and interdisciplinary in focus, the journal bridges the gap between peace researchers, educators, and activists. It publishes articles on a wide range of peace-related topics, including peace movements and activism, conflict resolution, nonviolence, internationalism, race and gender issues, cross-cultural studies, economic development, the legacy of imperialism, and the post-Cold War upheaval.
