Abstract submissions close on 30 November for the fifth joint international conference on human rights, on the theme Human Rights in an Age of Ambiguity to take place from 13 to 15 June 2016 at Fordham University’s Lincoln Center Campus, located in New York City. The conference will be held immediately prior to the annual meeting of the Academic Council on the United Nations System (16 – 18 June), also being hosted at Fordham University. Please note that proposals must relate to the conference theme to receive full consideration. You may submit either an individual paper or a panel proposal. Each full panel proposal should include exactly 4 papers plus a chair and discussant. We will also consider roundtables, which should include four participants plus a chair. Please note that we intend to accept relatively few roundtables. Each roundtable proposal should indicate the importance of it being roundtable rather than a panel and should be directly related to the theme of the conference.
We look forward to welcoming you to Fordham University in June 2016!
