Race, Religion and Human Rights
Call for Papers
Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair system. They must be no longer than 300 words and must include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.
The deadline for the submissions is Monday 19 January 2015.
This call for papers seeks to examine law in the context of race, religion and/or human rights in its political, social, economic or cultural context. The stream seeks to encourage papers that either adopt a traditional and theoretical approach to race, religion or human rights or a stance that is cross-cutting and can also be interdisciplinary. Papers are welcomed that provide a novel approach to the subject matter of race, religion and/or human rights.
For informal discussion please email the stream convenor, Fernne Brennan at the e-mail address above
