Calls for Books
International Human Rights Law in Practice Series (Brill/Nijhoff): Judicial and quasi-judicial institutions play an increasingly important interpretative role in bringing international human rights law to life and shaping its contours. Any study of contemporary international human rights law must therefore look beyond a mere textual analysis of codified norms. Only through critical analysis of the human rights decision-making process can the breadth and effectiveness of the protection afforded be fruitfully gauged. Such analysis is urgently needed in a multi-polar, international community where questions concerning the function and adequacy of human rights law are routinely raised. The International Human Rights Law in Practice Series meets this need by studying the practice of international and regional institutions in the field of human rights. Through the publication of rigorous scholarship in the form of peer-reviewed monographs, commentaries, and documentary collections, the Series aims to disseminate specialized research, foster debate on topical human rights issues, and contribute to the training of human rights lawyers.
The Series Editors of the International Human Rights Law in Practice Series welcome proposals for the publication of monographs, commentaries, and documentary collections on any aspect falling within the remit of the Series. The Editors are particularly interested in books touching on aspects of the following topics:
- Right to Life;
- Freedom of Religion;
- Freedom of Expression;
- Freedom of Movement;
- International Human Rights Law and Inequality within States;
- International Human Rights Law and the Protection of the Environment;
- International Human Rights Law and History.
Prospective authors should submit the following documents by 31 December 2023:
- A 1500-word overview of the content and structure the book;
- A 600-word outline of the reasons as to why the book should be published in light of the existing literature;
- A sample chapter (only in the case of manuscripts at an advanced stage);
- A curriculum vitae.
Submissions should be sent to Professor Andrea Carcano at firstname.lastname@example.org.
