The Human Rights Institute at Deusto University is happy to announce a
Call for papers on Human Rights Research Methodologies
Rationale of the Special Issue
Today, it seems to be peacefully accepted that human rights are no longer the exclusive domain of public international law scholars. The growing interest that human rights have aroused to scholars of other disciplines since the late 1980s has surely enriched our knowledge in many ways and has also posed new challenges. Among these, one of the most important is surely the methodological question.
We seek article proposals with critical contributions to the methodological question in human rights research. We aim at gathering the widest possible panorama of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches, methods and techniques that we use today in the production of knowledge about human rights. Theoretical pieces as well as case studies are welcome, particularly with regard with interdisciplinary and critical approaches to human rights. We are also happy to receive reflections regarding the role of human rights practitioners and activists, as well as their interaction with Academia.
Please send expressions of interest together with a 500 word abstract by 1st April to the guest editors. Contact person: Dolores Morondo (firstname.lastname@example.org)
