Responsibility to Protect Student Journal

Call for papers: Spring 2019 Issue

In the wake of the new year, the Responsibility to Protect Student Journal is welcoming submissions for its first 2019 issue!

We invite current or recent undergraduate or postgraduate students to submit a paper on responses to mass atrocities and related issues. We are keen to receive excellent essays displaying the full diversity of scholarship on these issues.

Thus far the Student Journal has published six 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 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 previous issues, or want to submit an article or blog post, please visit the R2P Student Journal webpage. Deadline for submissions is 1 April 2019.

For further questions, our team may be reached via e-mail at We look forward to your submissions!
