Aims & Scope

The International Journal of Human Rights Education publishes articles that foster discussions on theories, models, concepts, practices, and empirical research (utilizing any methodologies) on human rights education in diverse educational, sociopolitical, and cultural settings.

The journal is interdisciplinary and international in scope. We are committed to open-access and online diffusion of leading research in the field in order to democratize access to scholarship. We are also deeply committed to linking theory to praxis as well as the emergence of new theories from grounded engagements in the field.

The journal seeks to cultivate a conversation among scholars, researchers, activists, educators, policy-makers, and practitioners of human rights education. The editors welcome well-conceived and well-written articles in English that advance our understanding and knowledge of human rights education and related issues. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to, human rights education in relation to issues of peace & conflict; global citizenship; social justice education; community-based empowerment efforts; solidarity with marginalized groups; decolonizing education; anti-oppressive education; critical pedagogy; and human rights activism.

Peer Review Policy:
All research articles in this journal will be initially screened by the editorial team, and then, if selected for further consideration, will be sent out for blinded peer review to at least two anonymous referees.
