Review of Human Rights Calls For Papers 2020


Call for Papers 2020

 Journal of Review of Human Rights


Review of Human Rights invites scholarly research papers for publication in its 2019 and 2020 volumes. 

Theme: In contemporary “precarious times” human rights are frequently violated, violence is perpetrated, and soft democracies back down in face of emergency regimes. These conditions produce the need to engage in critical reflection on our contemporary human condition. Our interdisciplinary Call for Papers seeks to reflect on these issues. We seek to reflect on multifarious manifestations of violence and derogations from human rights, whether historical or current. We would like to approach them from political, social, psychological, and cultural domains. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the situation of human rights is represented in art genre: literature, film, theatre or visual arts, and local narratives.

We hope that its interdisciplinary method will bring many interesting observations on and intellectual deliberations about the role of human rights in the past and in the present-day world. We invite both experienced scholars and young academics at the start of their careers, as well as doctoral students, to submit their papers.
