An examination of human rights advocacy

The University of Dayton will be hosting the academic conference The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy on October 1-3, 2015. This conference serves as an opportunity to foster scholar-practitioner collaboration, interdisciplinary dialogue, and cultivate critical introspection of human rights advocacy.

Call for Papers Deadline Extended

We are excited to have received many paper and panel proposals covering many human rights topics from a diversity of perspectives for our second biannual conference. We would like to ensure that as many proposals as possible are considered, especially given the range of subjects that have been proposed, and have therefore decided to extend the deadline for submissions through to March 20, 2015.
