Contribution to the First Issue of the East European Yearbook on Human Rights - deadline for submissions is September 2017

The East European Yearbook on Human Rights is a new regional legal journal, focusing on human rights discourse in the Eastern European area, but situating this in the broader context of worldwide problems and developments in the area of human rights. 

The journal is a venue to share both common and disparate experiences in relation to human rights and it can be a valuable source of insight for scholars conducting research into other transition situations. Added value is provided by the two journal sections that will offer overviews and analysis of regional human rights practice and literature, which aim to become an important resource for the human rights academic research community, human rights activists and civil society in general (to contribute to these sections, email the editors at East.EYHR@gmail.com).

The Board of Editors of the East European Yearbook on Human Rights is issuing a Call for Papers for its first edition set to be published in the spring/summer of 2018 on human rights issues in the (post)transitional setting.

We have now created a website for the journal and announced the first call for papers.


The first issue is set to be published in the spring/summer of 2018 (deadline for submissions is September 2017) and special focus will be on human rights issues in the (post)transitional setting. 

Possible themes that are mentioned in our call for papers are the following:

  • Analysis of the most pressing human rights issues in a specific transitional setting
  • A comparative analysis of different transitions in relation to human rights issues
  • Whether the Eastern European transitions have reached the post-transition stage or are they regressing? And the effect this can have on human rights of those societies
  • What should be the fundamental human rights issues on the table for transitioning states?
  • What, if any, role has commitment to human rights had in the transition of the Eastern and Central European societies towards democratic governance?
  • Has societal and economic transition of the last 25 years in the Eastern and Central European countries led to the loss of the idealistic perception of human rights?
The General Articles section of the Yearbook is open to submissions from the entire academic community and is independently (double blind) peer‐reviewed by renowned experts. 
 
The Board of Editors will select articles based on quality of research and writing, diversity, and relevance of topic. Prospective articles, including a brief abstract, statement of affiliation, and confirmation of exclusive submission, should be submitted via email (East.EYHR@gmail.com) and should conform to the journal style guide on our website. 
 
The Yearbook has a word limit for general articles is 8 000 – 12 500 words including footnotes. For further information, or for consultation on a potential submission, you can contact the editors at East.EYHR@gmail.com.

 

Deadline for Submissions: 1 September 2017

O projektu 

UNCE – Výzkumné centrum pro lidská práva (Research Centre for Human Rights at the Charles University in Prague) je projektem Univerzity Karlovy při její  Právnické fakultě , která je předním pracovištěm v oboru právo a právní věda v ČR a má široké kontakty na významná zahraniční pracoviště. 

Vznik centra pro lidská práva má v první etapě především stimulovat vědeckou diskusi týkající se teoretických základů a metod výzkumu lidských práv. V rámci širšího výzkumného týmu centra se pak mohou formovat užší skupiny zaměřené na dílčí témata výzkumu. Zároveň bude podporovat pravidelné výměny názorů v rámci mezioborově složeného týmu. UNCE je platformou pro společný výzkum mladších i starších odborníků z různých pracovišť.

Dynamika v dané oblasti výzkumu se projevuje v rovině jak obsahové, tak strukturální. Na mezinárodní úrovni (ale nejenom na ní) se objevuje otázka tzv. nových lidských práv. Na vnitrostátní úrovni jde o pokračující výzkum vztahu textu lidskoprávních katalogů a jejich významového obalu, založeného judikaturou. Zde se nabízí i srovnávání přístupů mezi různými státy napříč právními kulturami, a to jak v současnosti, tak v historické perspektivě.

Od září roku 2015 je VCLP/UNCE členem mezinárodní akademické sítě Association of Human Rights Institutes (AHRI).
