Centre for Rapoport for Human Rights and Justice: Call for Papers

by | Nov 14, 2017

Dedicated to interdisciplinary and critical dialogue on international human rights law and discourse, the Rapoport Center’s Working Paper Series (WPS) publishes innovative papers by established and early-­‐career researchers as well as practitioners. The goal is to provide a productive environment for debate about human rights among academics, policymakers, activists, practitioners, and the public.

Authors from all disciplines and institutions are welcome to submit papers on any topic related to human rights. For the 2017-­‐8 series, we particularly encourage papers that explore the relationship between labor, inequality and human rights, in line with the Rapoport Center’s current thematic focus.

Submissions undergo a rigorous selection process by the WPS interdisciplinary editorial committee, which includes graduate students and faculty from across the University of Texas. The WPS committee provides detailed comments and feedback to authors before the paper is published online.

The 2017-­‐8 Working Paper series will be published in three rounds. Those wishing to have work considered for each of these rounds should submit papers before the following deadlines:

Publication Round Submission Deadline
Late-­‐Fall 2017 October 31, 2017
Early Spring 2018 December 31, 2017
Late-­‐Spring 2018 March 31, 2017

 

Publication in the WPS does not preclude future publication elsewhere; in fact, many of our working papers have since been published in academic journals and edited volumes.
