Abstract
The Peace Studies Association (PSA) was formed in 1987, when fifteen directors and representatives of existing college and university peace studies programs met at Colgate University to identify needs of faculty in peace studies and areas of cooperation among programs. The PSA worked to cooperate with organizations and individuals concerned with peace studies and the development of a more peaceful world. The PSA merged with the Consortium on Peace Research, Education and Development (COPRED) in 2002 to form the Peace and Justice Studies Association.

Historical Background
The Peace Studies Association (PSA) was a non-profit organization formed in 1987, when fifteen directors and representatives of existing college and university peace studies programs met at Colgate University to identify needs of faculty in peace studies and areas of cooperation among programs. The PSA worked to cooperate with organizations and individuals concerned with peace studies and the development of a more peaceful world. The group was an independent federation of college programs, university programs, and individuals for the study of peace, conflict, justice, and global security, which was formed in order to serve pedagogical, intellectual and institutional needs. The PSA merged with the Consortium on Peace Research, Education and Development (COPRED) in 2002 to form the Peace and Justice Studies Association. Together with the Peace History Society, the PSA edited the scholarly journal, Peace and Change.
