Indigenous Rights and Minority Rights

Convenor

Sarah Sargent

Call for Papers

Abstracts may only be submitted via the Easy Chair system. They must be no longer than 300 words and must include your title, name and institutional affiliation and your email address for correspondence.

The deadline for the submissions is Monday 19 January 2015.

This stream includes both indigenous and minority rights, at the domestic, regional and/or international level. Papers from any theoretical perspective are welcomed, as are papers which consider practical aspects of rights realisation, implementation and enforcement. Of particular interest would be papers which discuss debates on the normative meaning to be given to particular indigenous or minority rights. Indigenous and minority rights issues also intersect with many other areas of law, and papers which focus on these intersections (for example, environmental law, international economic law, intellectual property, tangible and intangible cultural heritage) are also particularly welcomed.

Informal queries prior to abstract submission are also welcomed, and can be made by emailing Sarah Sargent at the above email address.
