Michael Stohl and Alison Brysk have been commissioned by Edward Elgar to produce a volume for the Elgar Research Agenda series with the title Research Agendas for Human Rights. Each chapter (of approximately 5000 words) will explore the future of research in an area of human rights research of the author’s choosing (e.g. Citizenship, Gender, War and Conflict, Migration and Refugees, Environment, SDGs and Rights, Privacy, Security, Law and the Courts, Children, Institutions and Structures, Food, Health, Measurement and Analysis, New Frontiers or a subject that you would propose that is not on the list). The chapters should map out unanswered or ignored research questions, research controversies /or needed new areas of research and map out the potential directions and paths of travel to addressing the needed research. Scholars should feel free to challenge existing orthodoxies, explore new methodologies, tools and models. The volume’s intended audience is scholars and PhD students.
If you are interested in contributing a chapter please submit a one page proposal and a current CV or short bio by April 15 to Michael Stohl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selected contributors will be notified May 15 and asked to prepare chapter drafts due on 15 December 2018. Contributors will then be hosted travel, accommodation and meals provided) at a workshop at UCSB January 18-19, 2019 where the chapter drafts will be presented and discussed by the assembled contributors and suggestions for revisions for final chapters presented. Final revised chapters will be due March 15, 2019 and the volume will appear in early 2020.
