  • CALL FOR PAPERS – Special issue on transitional justice

    On the world day for international justice, the Responsibility to Protect Student Journal would like to invite current or recent undergraduate or postgraduate students to submit a paper for our upcoming 2018 issue on transitional justice. We are keen to receive excellent essays displaying the full diversity of scholarship on this issue.

    Thus far the Student Journal has published five issues showcasing student articles on mass atrocity prevention and similar topics, and we are committed to continue being a platform where student voices can be heard.

    The Journal accepts papers between 2500 and 6000 words which meet the other criteria outlined in the submission guidelines on our website.

    We also accept shorter analytical pieces of 500 to 800 words on a rolling basis for the blog, as well as creative work related to these themes in the form of poems, videos, photo articles etc.

    If you wish to learn more about our work, see examples form previous issues, or want to submit and article or blog post, please visit the R2P Student Journal webpage. Deadline for submissions is 1st October.

    For further questions, our team may be reached via e-mail at r2pstudentjournal@gmail.com.

  • The fifth issue is out now

    This new issue comprises six articles that touch on diverse themes, from the nature of human rights to international criminal justice.

    Diversity and heterogeneity of academic debate is critical to our journal. Our efforts are focused towards creating a virtual academic platform that allows a plurality of young voices to speak about important subjects such as responses to mass violence and international criminal justice. In doing so, we are continuously extending the scope of the journal to cover and engage with critical perspectives on tangential subjects such as human rights and transitional justice. The diversity of our publications is proof that this journal’s scope goes beyond its name. This is not a journal that advocates for or against R2P, but an inclusive intellectual space that allows young voices to critically engage, unpack and make their contribution to some of the most pressing debates in the field of responses to gross human rights violations.
