Welcome to the Harvard Human Rights Journal
The Harvard Human Rights Journal was founded in 1988 and has since endeavored to be a site for a broad spectrum of scholarship on international and domestic human rights issues. The Journal publishes a range of original scholarly works on human rights issues of contemporary relevance, and in the past has featured pieces on subjects as diverse as refugee asylum law, female prisoner’s rights, rights of child soldiers, oil and the role of the World Bank, detention, rendition, and domestic violence.
We encourage legal and other academic scholars to submit original works that foster dialogue across disciplines. We have closed submissions at this time and will re-open for Volume 24 next spring.
The Harvard Human Rights Journal is proud to offer Volume 22, Issue 2 which features a piece by Senator Edward M. Kennedy titled “Health Care as a Basic Human Right: Moving from Lip Service to Reality”
