Catherine Langlois, professor of strategy at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business, has been elected president of the Peace Science Society (International) for 2016-17.

The Peace Science Society (International), or PSS(I), is an independent, nonprofit organization that encourages the development of peace analysis and conflict management. Since the society’s establishment in 1963, it has welcomed and utilized relevant work of the social and natural sciences as they relate to international relations. The society holds annual elections to determine a council of officers elected from and by the membership.

The PSS(I) encourages and supports the publication of research avoiding social, religious, or national bias. As president, Langlois joins prominent scholars such as Steve Brams of New York University and James Morrow of the University of Michigan.

Langlois’ term will begin at the society’s business meeting in November 2016 and will run through the business meeting in 2017. In addition to the guidance Langlois will provide to the society, she will deliver a presidential address at the 2016 business meeting in South Bend, Indiana, that will subsequently be published in the society’s journal, Conflict Management and Peace Science.
