AALS International Human Rights Section Call for Papers

The AALS International Human Rights Section is sponsoring two different Calls for Papers at the 2017 AALS Annual Meeting.  Submission details for both Calls for Papers are available below:

CALL FOR PAPERS
INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
SECTION PANEL
2016 AALS ANNUAL MEETING
January 3-7, 2017, San Francisco, CA

The AALS Section on International Human Rights is pleased to announce that it will sponsor a call for papers for its program during the 2017 AALS Annual Meeting in San Francisco, CA. The program will be called Human Rights Outside the West. It will take place during the Annual Meeting, which is scheduled for January 3-7, 2017. We anticipate selecting up to two speakers from this call for papers to present their work during our Section’s program.


The Section’s 2017 program will focus on Human Rights Outside the West. How well has the Western human rights paradigm traveled outside of its home territories? Europe has, to be sure, the most effective regional human rights mechanism in the European Court for Human Rights. But what about developments in Africa or the Americas? How does Asia, which has no such regional mechanism, fit into the mix? Panelists will look into either regional institutions, or developments within a particular state (India, China, South Africa, etc.). This panel will explore how human rights law has developed within domestic legal systems or regional systems outside the west.
Deadline and Submission
The deadline to submit a paper is September 15, 2016. Please email submissions in Word or PDF format to Section Chair, Milena Sterio (m.sterio@csuohio.edu) and Section Chair-Elect, Tim Webster (tjw71@case.edu). In selecting proposals, priority will be given to new voices in international human rights (i.e., individuals who have not previously presented a paper at AALS on the topic of international human rights). Presentations at various stages of completion will be considered. Decisions will be made in late September.
Publication
Papers may have already been accepted for publication but must not have been published prior to the Annual Meeting. The section has no plans to publish the selected papers, and individual presenters should continue to seek their own publishers.
Eligibility
Per AALS rules, this call for papers is only open to full-time faculty at an AALS member school. Presenters will be expected to cover their own costs in attending the AALS annual meeting.

For any questions or inquiries please contact Milena Sterio at m.sterio@csuohio.edu.

CALL FOR PAPERS
INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
SECTION PANEL
2016 AALS ANNUAL MEETING
January 3-7, 2017, Seattle, WA

The AALS Section on International Human Rights is pleased to announce that it will sponsor a call for papers for its program during the 2017 AALS Annual Meeting in Seattle, Washington. The program will be called Domestic Humanitarian Law. It will take place during the Annual Meeting, which is scheduled for January 3-7, 2017. We anticipate selecting up to two speakers from this call for papers to present their work during our Section’s program.
The Section’s 2017 program will focus on Domestic Humanitarian Law. From Nuremberg to Phnom Penh, humanitarian law over the past 60 years has developed almost exclusively in international (or hybrid) tribunals). What about within domestic legal systems? International tribunals, for all of their virtues, continue to be extraordinary, existing as it were above the “legal fray.” This has ramifications for the reception, implementation and respect for humanitarian law. This panel will investigate how domestic courts handle war crimes, and crimes against humanity, and other atrocities. What are the virtues, and drawbacks, of domestic adjudication? Does this lead to a stronger respect for humanitarian law?
Deadline and Submission
