Contribute to our blog

We welcome short contributions to this blog, particularly those that address any of our current research project themes, or present human rights as a broad interdisciplinary subject that requires interaction between the humanities, social sciences, and other academic areas.

Who can contribute?

We welcome contributions from academics, practitioners and postgraduate students at all levels in the field of human rights or linked fields such as migration studies, development or conflict.

We particularly welcome submissions from research students who may want to share fragments of their preliminary research, or who wish to link their research to current affairs and policy issues.  We aim to publish these posts quickly, and will share them on social media and through our mailing lists.
