Call for Papers: Inequality & Human Rights

November 5, 2015 at 4:32 pm Leave a comment

The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at The University of Texas at Austin School of Law invites submissions for an interdisciplinary conference on the theme “Inequality and Human Rights,” to be held April 7-8, 2016.

They are seeking submissions from any discipline that consider whether international human rights law, movements, and discourses have, could or should engage with the problem of economic inequality nationally or internationally. Are human rights frameworks equipped to address economic inequality? Might their promotion foreclose other, more effective, vocabularies and strategies aimed at economic justice? How might human rights frameworks need to change to contribute to a more egalitarian world?

Send an abstract of under 600 words to Julia Dehm at jdehm@law.utexas.edu by December 1, 2015. A limited number of travel grants are available to support travel costs for selected participants who are unable to receive financial support from their home institutions.  If you wish to apply for a travel grant, please complete an application form (available at https://goo.gl/Jk33Ai).
