||RHR focuses on human rights broadly conceived. We are an interdisciplinary journal and therefore we encourage variety of approaches in social sciences and humanities. However, we prefer qualitative and theoretically informed articles.
In contemporary â€œprecarious timesâ€ human rights are frequently violated, violence is perpetrated, and soft democracies back down in the face of emergency regimes. These conditions produce the need to engage in critical reflection on our contemporary human condition. Our interdisciplinary Journal seeks to reflect on these issues. We seek to reflect on multifarious manifestations of violence and derogations from human rights, whether historical or current. We would like to approach them from political, social, psychological, and cultural domains. We also want to devote considerable attention to how the situation of human rights is represented in art genre: literature, film, theatre or visual arts, and local narratives.
We hope that its interdisciplinary method brings many interesting observations on and intellectual deliberations about the role of human rights in the past and in the present-day world. We invite both experienced scholars and young academics at the start of their careers, as well as doctoral students, to turn in papers.
