CALL FOR PAPERS – Special issue on transitional justice

To mark the the 20th anniversary of the Rome Statute, 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 21st October 2018.
