The Harvard Human Rights Journal is starting a new community-based blog here on HarvardHRJ.com. The first post–a note from the director of a Yezidi organization on the rights of survivors of the Islamic State’s atrocities–is already online, and more will be coming soon.
We would like to invite our readers–students as well as human rights practitioners and publicists–to feel free to submit pieces to the blog. Submissions can be entirely original pieces or responses to previous posts. Unlike Journal Articles or Student Notes, we won’t require footnotes for blog posts, and the tone can be less academic and more persuasive or thinkpiece-y.
We hope that the Blog will be foster discussion and awareness of human rights issues, and we look forward to reading your submissions.
