Support from the Judith Reppy Institute for Peace and Conflict Studies to individuals and for program activities has generated book publications, in addition to the publications produced by our faculty and graduate students. The books, articles, and papers of institute members are among the leading publications in the field. 

Occasional Paper Series

The Reppy Institute publishes an occasional paper series. The series includes individual research results, collections of workshop and conference papers, and summaries of collaborative projects that have been sponsored by the institute. All of the occasional papers are now available electronically on the Cornell eCommons website.

Institute-Supported Books

Browse publications titles that have resulted from institute support to individuals or from workshops, conferences, or other program activities. In addition to these publications, there have been countless articles published in scholarly journals over the years by individuals involved with the program. Following is a list of books, published in part because of involvement of the Reppy Institute. In some cases, the institute provided research support to the author or provided assistance with manuscript preparation. Several publications are a result of institute conferences or workshops.

An edited version of Randall Forsberg's thesis, Toward a Theory of Peace: The Role of Moral Beliefs, with an introduction by Matthew Evangelista and Neta C. Crawford, is now available from Cornell University Press. You can download the e-book for free or purchase the paperback edition for $19.95.

Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies Archive

Archival materials of the Institute for Defense and Disarmament Studies, founded and run by Dr. Randall (Randy) Forsberg from 1980 until her untimely death in 2007, is available online. Supplemented materials from the personal collections of Matthew Evangelista, Judith Reppy, and other colleagues who have donated relevant items are included. The materials represent a sampling of a larger archive held at the Cornell University Library’s Division of Rare and Manuscript Collections.

Annual Reports

Reppy Institute members' publications related to peace studies are listed in the program's annual reports.  Each report covers the highlights of the academic year and coincides with Cornell's fiscal year, which runs from July 1 through June 30. The reports describe program initiatives and also list the research interests, work, and achievements of institute students, visitors, and faculty. Included is information on program workshops, funding, seminars and events, courses, and institute management. The reports also detail institute members' interests, activities, and publications related to peace studies.  Recent reports will soon be available electronically for reading or download from the Reppy Institute eCommons page.
