The Berlin Forum on Global Politics, the Institute for Global Dialogue, and the RECLAIM! Universal Human Rights Initiative are pleased to announce that we are jointly organizing a call for papers on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) and its Articles. The UDHR is the landmark document for the international human rights movement of the 20th century, and remains its legal bedrock today.
Our publication will commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Declaration, aiming to expand awareness about the document in general and understanding about contemporary human rights issues in particular. We believe that discussing and sharing ideas on the UDHR will help to make it more effective in protecting human dignity and security. For these reasons, we will also distribute our publication under a Creative Commons license, so that everybody interested in reading and sharing it can do so freely.
If you are an institution, organization, group, or individual who is interested both in the trials and prospects of the Declaration, we invite you to submit an abstract for an article – short, informative, and written without jargon – and contribute to academic, expert, and public understanding of the UDHR and its Articles. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is Monday, 24th June, 2019.
