Human Rights Research Students’ Conference Call for Papers: 10-11 September 2013

The Association of Human Rights Institutes will hold its annual conference at the Human Rights Consortium, University of London, from 9-11 September. The AHRI annual conference is where member institutions gather to coordinate and plan their research through working group seminars and to discuss current issues in defined research areas. A PhD student conference will begin during the afternoon of 10 September and continue until the morning of 11 September. 

This two-day conference is aimed at students working within the broad interdisciplinary field of human rights. The conference aims to stimulate research on contemporary human rights issues, problems, challenges and policies, and to facilitate the dissemination of such research. We are particularly interested in inviting papers that move beyond standard academic approaches to embrace critically engaged scholarship. 

We encourage interdisciplinary research and debate and would welcome papers from many (and multiple) disciplines including sociology, anthropology, law, politics, philosophy, economics, peace and conflict studies, development studies and history.

Please send abstracts of up to 300-350 words to HRC@sas.ac.uk by 19 August 2013. Presenters will be asked to speak for 15-20 minutes on their research proposal and work to date.

We welcome participation from students at any stage of their postgraduate research studies. Presenters will present their research in panels to be chaired by senior academics who will also serve as discussants.
