Call for Papers by the Essex Human Rights Review
Wednesday, October 27, 2004 10:20 AM

The Essex Human Rights Review (EHRR) is now accepting submissions for its December 2004 issue.

EHRR welcomes articles, book reviews and other contributions on contemporary human rights issues, primarily (but not exclusively) in the areas of law, political science, sociology, and philosophy, covering both the academic and the practical aspects of human rights. For our next issue, we would particularly welcome submissions that focus on the following topics:

  • Implementing the Right to Health
  • From the Rules of War to the Rule of Law? Iraq at the Crossroads
  • The Rule of Law in Central Asia and Former Soviet Union

All submissions should be in English. The contributions must be original, previously unpublished material. Submissions must not already be under consideration for any other publication. The length of submissions should not exceed 8,000 words for articles and 3,000 words for other items (e.g. book/conference reviews), including footnotes.

Submissions exceeding the word limit will be considered only in exceptional circumstances. The initial appraisal of all submissions will be carried out on an anonymous basis; the final decision on the publication of a paper rests with the EHRR's Editorial Board.

Please e-mail your submissions in Microsoft Word format, together with full contact details, to:, by 1 November 2004. The subject line of your e-mail should include the title of your article.

All submissions have to follow the EHRR style sheet, available on our website, or else they will not be considered for publication.
