Nordic Journal of Human Rights

The Nordic Journal of Human Rights announces a call for papers

Firmly established as one of Scandinavia’s leading journals in the field, the Nordic Journal of Human Rights provides a forum for academic critique, information about and analysis pertaining to human rights. 

The Nordic Journal of Human Rights is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal, providing multi-disciplinary content on current developments and emerging perspectives on the theory and practice of human rights. While the content of the Journal covers select themes from a Nordic human rights perspective, it also discusses topics of international and global concern. 

The Journal welcomes the submission of manuscripts with theoretical or empirical contributions that address, but are not limited to, the following broadly defined areas: 

•    Freedom of speech and multiculturalism, including hate speech and a presumed conflict of rights 
•    The UN Sustainable Development Goals and human rights, including economic, social and cultural rights, and governance and human rights 
•    Business and human rights
•    Human rights and austerity measures 
•    Human rights in the age of terrorism 
•    Critical perspectives to human rights
•    International justice and human rights 
•    Responsibility to Protect
•    The ‘shrinking political space’ for civil society and human rights advocacy

In addition to standard articles (of maximum 10 000 words), the Journal welcomes legal development articles which are shorter pieces (of maximum 5000 words) detailing current legal advancements or declines in the protection of human rights.
