Dear CSR Legal Research Network members,
This message may be of particular interest for those of who have an interest in Business & Human Rights, as well as junior scholars in your network with such an interest (please do share).
The Nordic Journal on Human Rights (NJHR) has issued a Call for Papers on Research Methods on Business and Human Rights.
An optional paper development workshop (PDW) will be held during the Annual Conference of the European Business Ethics Network (EBEN) 14-17 June in Jyväskylä in Finland. A Special Track on Business & Human Rights (BHR) under this conference has the form of a PDW for the NJHR special issue. Attending the PDW is not a condition for acceptance for publication, but it will allow participants to receive feedback on advanced drafts for improvements prior to the submission of full proposals. Please see further information at: https://www.jyu.fi/jsbe/ebenac2017/paper-submissions-1/special-tracks/b
To be considered for the PDW, please send an abstract (around 500 words) no later than 5 April (please disregard information on earlier deadline at the conference website), following the procedure listed at the website of the EBEN conference (see link above). According to the conference organizers, the process for submitting an abstract for the Special Track is this:
“When you go to the submission system and leave your abstract there is an option for a special track. You just choose the option and we know at once that your choice is human rights (or some other track or general theme(. When then send the abstracts to the special track organizer. The system is really easy to use.”
Please also note that EBEN membership is not a condition for participation in the PDW (but participations is cheaper for members).
Please note that there are separate deadlines and procedures for submissions for the journal (first link above) and the PDW (second link above).
