Paper submissions for the Human Rights in an Age of Ambiguity conference are now open and a copy of the draft conference program is now available.
Please ensure that you upload your paper no later than Monday, 30 May to allow your fellow panel members time to read it in advance of the conference. The process for uploading your paper can be found directly through the conference web site. After logging in, you will find the option to upload your paper using the “See Your Schedule” tab. Please note that the site is only able to accept PDF files and all files must be smaller than 10mb.
To access papers uploaded to the archive, simply browse the online program. For presentations with a paper already submitted to the archive, use the "Download" option.
We strongly encourage you to send a copy of your paper to your panel Chair and Discussant, or to let them know via email that you have uploaded your paper to the submission site. Email information for panelists is available via the “See Your Schedule” tab (click on the link for your panel/s).
All panel sessions are 90 minutes in length. We ask that you reserve between 30-40 minutes for questions. Therefore, please coordinate with your panel Chair regarding the length of individual presentations and discussant remarks. Panel chairs are responsible for timekeeping as well as moderating discussion, and should be in touch with participants in advance of the conference to discuss logistics.
Please note that registration opens at 8:30 AM on Monday 13 June, and the conference officially opens at 10:00 AM. We then have a very full schedule over the next 3 days, with plenary addresses and roundtables, 38 panels, and a reception Monday evening. Panel room assignments and the final version of the program will be distributed shortly.
There are still rooms available in the McKeon dorm building. A link to the booking form can be found here. Bookings must be made by 16 May.
Finally, as a result of a late withdrawal, we have an opening for a discussant on a panel entitled Human Rights and Democratization (Wednesday 2:00-3:30). If you would like to volunteer to take on this role, please contact ASAP at HRjc2016@global-human-rights.org.
We look forward to seeing you next month.
