We wanted to give you a quick update on preparations for the conference on Human Rights in an Age of Ambiguity. The panel program has developed well. We have posted an updated version on the conference website. There have been a few changes to address the usual withdrawals from the conference, but these have been relatively few and we have been able to replace most papers with equally high quality papers. In a few instances we have replaced chairs and discussants, and while we have contacted individuals when we have done so, it might be a good idea to take another look at the program to confirm when your various responsibilities are scheduled. We have also posted updates to the plenary sessions. We are very excited by the diversity of eminent practitioners and academics who have agreed to address the conference.

A few reminders:
 
First, we have provided information about some accommodation possibilities on the conference website, including inexpensive dorm rooms and hotels which have extended a discount to conference participants.
 
Second, the deadline for paper submission is 30 May - two weeks before the deadline. This will provide your discussant adequate time to read your paper. Please upload your through the ISA system. It might also be helpful if you could e-mail your paper directly to the other panel participants. You can find the e-mail addresses of the other panel participants by going into the panel on the ISA system and choosing Email participants.
 
Third, if you require a letter confirming participation for visa purposes, direct all inquiries to the conference e-mail address (HRjc2016@global-human-rights.org) - please do not contact ISA directly. Please give us at least two weeks’ advance notice for any requests.
 
Fourth, don’t forget our partner conference, the annual meeting of the Academic Council on the United Nations System, occurring immediately after our conference. The theme is “Meeting the Challenges of Development and Dignity.” You are entitled to a 20% discount on registration for the ACUNS conference. You can find the discount code on the conference website when you are logged into your ISA account.
 
The conference website can be found at http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/HR-NYC-2016
 
We look forward to seeing all of you in June. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us by e-mail (HRjc2016@global-human-rights.org).

Two overlapping trends highlight the first decade and a half of the 21st Century: information abundance and the growing ubiquity of mobile communication devices. While it is often claimed that these developments have facilitated political uprisings and revolutions, there is much debate over whether they have increased the world’s peace and security.  This pre-conference will explore this important question at the international, state and individual levels. Keynote speakers include: Professors Robert Entman (George Washington University), Lene Hansen (University of Copenhagen), Steven Livingston (George Washington University) and Phil Seib (University of Southern California).

Read abstracts of the keynote speakers’ presentations here and details of the breakout session panels here.
