This series brings together established and emerging voices within the growing field of human rights studies. We are interested in publishing work from a range of perspectives, including ethnographic studies of human rights in practice, critical reflections on the idea of human rights, new proposals for a more effective international human rights system, and historical accounts of the rise of human rights as a globalized moral discourse.

We wish to promote outstanding work that reaches beyond conventional approaches and disciplinary boundaries in order to creatively examine the key dilemmas in contemporary human rights theory and practice. We are especially interested in research and theory that create bridges between the community of human rights scholars and the diverse communities of human rights practitioners. We seek work that is committed to the idea that human rights should be a fundamentally transdisciplinary area of human knowledge, political practice, and ethical inquiry, and that will make an important and lasting contribution to the study and understanding of human rights in this new century.
