Special Issue "Human Rights and Displaced People in Exceptional Times"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2020) | Viewed by 91242
Interests: drop community welfare
With 70 million people displaced globally, seeking and gaining safety and security is increasingly constrained. This leaves people dislocated by war, persecution, climate change and other disasters outside the protection of states and living with profoundly limited civil, political, economic and social rights.
Newly emerging conditions have created increased exceptionalism for asylum seekers and refugees including the following:
- The spread of Covid -19
- Impenetrable border protection measures
- Counter-terrorism discourse and practice
- Rise of the far right
- Environmental catastrophes
Papers are sought from across the globe and topics may include but are not limited to the above crises.
We welcome abstracts of no more than 300 words and brief biographical statements of up to 100 words by Friday 29 May. Notification of acceptance will be provided by 12 June. Final papers are due on 31 December for peer review.
