3. Call for Papers: The Rapoport Center Human Rights Working Paper Series. The Rapoport Center Human Rights Working Paper Series (WPS) is happy to announce a call for papers for the 2015 – 2016 academic year. The WPS seeks innovative papers of the highest quality by both researches and practitioners in the field of human rights. Acceptance to the WPS series provides authors with an opportunity to receive feedback on works in progress and stimulate a lively, productive conversation around the subject matter of their paper. This process is designed to prepare papers for publication in academic journals or other venues. This year we are particularly interested in papers exploring the relationship between human rights and inequality, natural resources governance, and the future of labor. Please see the submission guidelines here and  contact rcwps {at} law.utexas(.)edu with any inquiries.
