This special issue of ESSACHESS-Journal of Communication Studies offers rhetorical and/or cultural-critical perspectives on peace, non-violence, and the role of civic discourse in contemporary times. Intended for both academic and civic readership, the issue covers international scholarship that focuses mainly on the last 30 years of communication and rhetorical perspectives on peace-related discourse, including the historic period following 1989 that created a democratization of public discourse throughout the world, yet engaging even more peace and conflict as paradigmatic perspectives on migration, terrorism, communism, and political and social change.
