Call for Papers on Human Rights

November 2, 2010

A Call for Undergraduate Papers on Human Rights:

The Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies at Webster University is seeking papers for a new, peer-reviewed, undergraduate journal focused on the study of international human rights. Submission Deadline: January 15, 2011
            The inaugural issue of Righting Wrongs: A Journal of Human Rights is scheduled for online publication in May, 2011, and will focus on “Women’s Rights as Human Rights.” The editors are seeking submissions from students whose work focuses on women’s rights issues such as access to education for girls, human trafficking and rape, economic equality, and so on. Papers on other human rights issues will also be considered. Work must be from students who are currently enrolled in an accredited undergraduate institution, or who completed their undergraduate degrees within the past six months. Further submission details are available.

Contact: humanrights@webster.edu or lkingston54@webster.edu

Please note that I have not been able to find much information about the Institute for Human Rights and Humanitarian Studies online. However, Webster University, which is located in Webster Groves (St. Louis, Missouri) does have an undergraduate major in International Human Rights and is currently hosting a year of activities focusing on Human Rights, with a focus on women.
