Call for Papers for General Issue

The Cross-cultural Human Rights Review invites submission of papers for its 2020 publications. Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. This means that your submission can be sent at any time, all year round. However, to be published in one of the two general issues of this year, submissions must be sent by 22nd May 2020.



The Cross-cultural Human Rights Review (CCHRR) is a peer-reviewed, multilingual, multidisciplinary, periodical, devoted to cross-cultural human rights studies. It publishes academic papers, book reviews, and has a dedicated blog page online.

It aims to broaden the discourse within the field of human rights, producing stimulating research on the diverse cultural understandings and protection of human rights. In this respect, research focuses not only on human rights, but on related social justice issue. It refers not only to human rights law, but to how human rights are implemented through social institutions – i.e., (although not limited to) cultural norms and moral rules, in particular, relating to religion, family, governance, education, and the economy, which are at the core of society. The cross-cultural approach also calls for papers with a focus on research paradigms, including, the decolonial, anticolonial and other relevant frameworks. We welcome submissions which are multidisciplinary and fall within this scope.
