Human Rights in Context
Damien Short, Reader in Human Rights and Director of Human Rights Consortium and Corinne Lennox, Senior Lecturer in Human Rights and Associate Director of the Human Rights Consortium, both at the School of Advanced Study, University of London.
Research on human rights, or social and political issues of relevance to human rights, is nowadays carried out in many academic departments, from law to anthropology, from sociology and criminology to environmental science and philosophy. Yet, there is surprisingly little communication amongst scholars working in these different disciplines, and research that takes more than one perspective into account is seldom encouraged. This series bridges the divide between the social sciences and the humanities in human rights scholarship.
Formal submissions should be sent directly to Berghahn Books, however initial enquiries are encouraged and should be sent to Damien Short, who will be able to advise and help you through the formal procedure.
