The Journal for Human Rights

The Journal of Human Rights is a quarterly journal that serves as an interdisciplinary forum for the public discussion and social-theoretic reflection of questions of human rights. The journal attempts to deepen the debate about the human rights in political science and in related disciplines by fostering systematic reconstruction of the normative foundation of human rights. It offers wide-ranging approaches to the subject including both theoretic and empirical perspectives. The papers address questions of legitimacy of rights, of theoretical foundations of rights discourse, and the interpretation of civil, social and cultural rights in particular contexts. The reflection on the contemporary theory and practice of human rights complements the international human rights discourse.


Goals

The main objective of The Journal of Human Rights is to make a significant scholarly contribution to the theory of human rights and enrich and expand discourses about rights in practical political, economic, and social contexts. The journal is committed to the systematic development of the human rights subfield in political science and to the broadening the debate on human rights at all levels.


Target Audience

Scholars in all fields of political science, history, philosophy, sociology, and legal theory. Politicians, policy makers and decision makers in politics, economy, and civil society.
