Call for Papers for the OxHRH Graduate Research Student Workshop

admin 5th May 2016

Venue: Mary Hyde Eccles Room, Pembroke College

Date: June 3rd, 2016

Time: 2:30pm-6pm

The Oxford Human Rights Hub is pleased to announce its second workshop for human rights MPhil and DPhil students at Oxford University. This half-day workshop will bring together and foster a network of graduate students and academics in various disciplines working in human rights at Oxford. The aim is to come together as a community to explore current developments, to analyse existing weakness and to attempt to point towards future improvements in the way in which human rights can address current legal and social problems.

MPhil and DPhil students are invited to present a paper on their current research in progress. This is an invaluable opportunity to enrich student’s doctoral research and to gain feedback from peers and academics specialising in human rights. Students at all stages of their doctorate are encouraged to participate. Oxford Law Faculty members will be providing research insights, suggestions and advice on presentations, including:

  • Professor Sandra Fredman (Rhodes Professor of the Laws of the British Commonwealth and the USA, Director of OxHRH)
  • Professor Alan Bogg (Dean of Graduate Studies, Oxford University)
  • Dr Meghan Campbell (Weston Junior Research Fellow, New College, Deputy-Director of the OxHRH)
  • Professor Timothy Endicott (Oxford Univeristy and former Dean of the Oxford Law Faculty), and
  • Professor Emeritus Mark Freedland

We anticipate that Oxford University Press and Hart Publishing will also be attending to provide advice on publication.

The participants will be invited to publish their papers as part of the OxHRH Working Paper Series which will be published in the OxHRH website and disseminated throughout our network.

Interested MPhil and DPhil students are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words to the Oxford Human Rights Hub at oxfordhumanrightshub@law.ox.ac.uk by May 16th, 2016.
