Call for Papers: Columbia Human Rights Law Review Symposium; Submit Abstracts by April 20

Human Rights and the ‘Forever War’

The Columbia Human Rights Law Review (HRLR), in collaboration with the Columbia Law School Human Rights Institute (HRI), is publishing a symposium edition about the relationship between the U.S. ‘War on Terror’, sometimes referred to as the ‘Forever War,’ and human rights law.

We invite proposals on topics of your own framing consistent with the symposium’s general purpose of advancing scholarship and critical analysis regarding human rights law and its relationship with international humanitarian law and jus ad bellum during and after the ‘Forever War.’

Submission Instructions and Deadlines

Individuals interested in publishing should submit a prospectus summary of no more than 1000 words describing the paper’s proposed topic, themes, and research methodologies by no later than April 20, 2015.

The HRLR, in coordination with HRI, will then select 4–6 papers for presumption of publication.

Please submit abstracts to <> under the subject line “HRLR Symposium Abstract.”

We anticipate review of several interim drafts over the summer of 2015.

As a reference, HRLR submissions generally range from 10,000 to 30,000 words.

There may be an opportunity to present papers at Columbia Law School in the fall of 2015.

Any major edits to your article must be completed and submitted by October 26, 2015.

The article will then undergo our editing process, with anticipated publication in April 2016.
