1. Call for Papers: The Promise and Perils of Human Rights for Governing Digital Platforms. The Global Transformations and Governance Challenges Initiative at Leiden University has announced a new call for papers for an interdisciplinary workshop on The Promise and Perils of Human Rights for Governing Digital Platforms. As the policy arena of digital platform governance becomes increasingly centred on human rights-based approaches, this workshop invites critical (self-)reflection on the potential and perils of human rights as a vocabulary of governance in this context. The aim is to foster an interdisciplinary exchange with leading experts from diverse academic disciplines and communities of practice, including but not limited to the fields of ethics and (political) philosophy, anthropology, and (international) law. The two-day workshop will be hybrid and take place on 18 – 19 January 2024. Applicants are invited to submit a non-anonymized abstract (maximum 300 words) in PDF format by email to by no later than 30 September 2023. Full project description and call for papers are accessible here. 

2. Call for Papers: Interdisciplinary Workshop on Displacement, Forced Migration and Reparation – Comparisons and Controversies. This workshop will take place on 4 – 5 February 2024, hosted by University of Haifa. The aim of this workshop is to gather an interdisciplinary group of scholars in order to discuss reparations as an instrument of policy making available to societies that experienced violent uprooting and forced migration. The organisers believe that a more comprehensive, evidence-based and comparative research on the subject is needed in order to make reparations a vital prerequisite for reconciliation and maintaining peace during periods of transition. The workshop is organised in collaboration with the Research Group “Paying for the Past” at the Israel Institute of Advanced Studies, the Minerva Centre for the Rule of Law under Extreme Conditions at the University of Haifa, the Jacob Robinson Institute for the History of Individual and Collective Rights at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the Weidenfeld Institute of Jewish Studies, University of Sussex.  The organisers invite proposals for papers (20 minutes in length) engaging with these and related themes. Interested persons should send a title, up to 250 words abstract, along with a short bio and contact information to Michal Ben Gal bmichal {at}  The deadline for submitting a proposal is 1 September 2023. For further information, contact the organisers: Itamar Mann: imann {at}; Iris Nachum: iris.nachum {at}; and, Gideon Reuveni: g.reuveni {at} Support for travel and stay in Israel expenses may be available. Researchers asking for support should also submit a letter of request.

3. Call for Papers: Brawijaya Law Journal.
