The International Centre on Human Rights and Drug Policy is currently seeking submissions for the second edition of the International Journal on Human Rights and Drug Policy. The Journal is the first and only international peer reviewed law journal focusing exclusively on human rights and drug policy issues.
Established in 2009, the International Centre on Human Rights and Drug Policy is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative and high quality legal and human rights scholarship on issues related to drug laws, policy and enforcement. It pursues this mandate by publishing original, peer reviewed research on drug issues as they relate to international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and public international law.
Submissions will be considered under the following categories:
- Original articles – research and analysis on drug policy issues as they intersect with international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law and/or public international law.
- Opinion/Commentary – these submissions are designed to allow author(s) a forum to explore new and innovative thinking, promote debate and highlight emerging areas of interest.
- Case summaries – these are intended to highlight and summarise new court decisions and other jurisprudence related to the Centre’s mandate.
- Responses – these are short comments on previously published papers.
Author’s guidelines, as well as volume 1 of the Journal, may be found here. For more information email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for the second edition is 15 November 2011.
