Authors interested in sharing ideas on the topic should submit their manuscripts until August 15th
Sur – International Journal on Human Rights, a publication by Conectas Human Rights aiming at promoting critical debate on human rights practices in the Global South, is receiving articles to its next issue, number 17, on “Human Rights and Development: Ideas and Strategies for the 21th Century.”
This issue will discuss the contradictions between sustained economic growth and consumption in Global South countries and, both the challenges on access to rights on those same countries, and the inefficacy of traditional civil society strategies to cope with those challenges.
“In countries such as in Brazil where washing machines are available in places where clean water is still scarce, Sur Journal invites authors to rethink economic growth from a human rights perspective”, explains Thiago Amparo, Research and Training Coordinator at Conectas.
Authors interested in having their manuscripts considered to this issue, to be published on the second half of 2012, should submit their manuscripts until August 15th. Contributions should be sent electronically (in Microsoft Word format with maximum length of 70,000 characters) to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is available here
