Call for Essays: Academic Repression & Human Rights

Peace Review, a Routledge/Taylor & Francis quarterly, multidisciplinary,

addressing the intersection of international academic repression and
human rights.

Essays exploring the widest range of topics relating to
the theme are invited, in particular those exploring the application of
human rights practices and strategies to situations involving the most
severe threats to academic freedom-such as threats to life or liberty
experienced in repressive, conflict and post-conflict societies.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

– Legal/human rights standards, techniques & strategies as
related to academic freedom

– Identification/measurement of threats to academic freedom &
institutional autonomy

– Impact of political, economic & social factors on academic
freedom and human rights

– Historical or regional perspectives on academic freedom and
institutional autonomy

– Academic freedom, autonomy and human rights in conflict and
post-conflict settings

– Population mobility, academic freedom and human rights

– Higher education, globalization and human rights

– Impact of democracy on higher education, academic freedom &
human rights

– Terrorism, security and higher education

– Toward the 22nd Century-the future of academic freedom & human

Peace Review publishes essays on ideas and research in peace studies,
broadly defined. Our essays are relatively short (2500-3500 words),
and are intended for a wide readership. We are most interested in the
cultural and political issues surrounding conflicts occurring between
nations and peoples. Since we are a transnational journal (we
distribute to more than 40 nations), we want to avoid speaking with
the voice of any particular national culture or politics. Relevant
topics include war, violence, human rights, political economy,
development, culture and consciousness, the environment, and related
issues. Generally, we do not reprint essays that have been published

Please send essays on this theme by July 15, 2007. Essays should run
between 2500 and 3500 words, and should be jargon- and footnote- free.

Scholars for Peace in the Middle East (SPME) is not-for-profit [501 (C) (3)], grass-roots community of scholars who have united to promote honest, fact-based, and civil discourse, especially in regard to Middle East issues. We believe that ethnic, national, and religious hatreds, including anti-Semitism and anti-Israelism, have no place in our institutions, disciplines, and communities. We employ academic means to address these issues.
