The Universal is Think Rights’ new annual human rights journal with an interdisciplinary scope publishing research by students (BA, MA and Ph.D.) and recent graduates. Read more about The Universal.
The compilation of the inaugural issue is well underway. The editorial board has received 15 manuscripts covering a variety of human rights topics, of which, 5 have been deemed suitable for publication. We have finished the peer review stage and we’re almost done with the final editing of the articles.
We have conducted an interview with Anthony Chase, Professor at Occidental College, exploring the different themes of the articles of the first issue. An edited version of this interview will be published in the journal. The editorial board is currently finalizing an editorial, touching upon the interdisciplinary nature of the inaugural issue and introducing the different articles. Finally, Marie Juul Petersen, postdoc at the Danish Institute for Human Rights, has written a forward, providing a solid introduction to the field of human rights.
We expect the launch date of the first issue will be in February 2016.
