The International Peace Park designation legitimized a spirit of cooperation that has been used to seek ongoing designations and other forms of cooperation that may not have been anticipated at the time. This conference, therefore, aims to document that ripple effect and consider its potential and realization around the world. Several sectors of cooperation have been identified: managerial, scientific, public/private, intergovernmental and educational. The aim is to share success stories, embrace challenges, and advance the theory and practice of transboundary management, especially in the context of international peace parks.
