Call for Papers: 2019 Human Rights Essay Award Competition
The Human Rights Essay Award, sponsored by the Academy on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law at the American University Washington College of Law, seeks to stimulate the production of scholarly work in international human rights law. The topic of the 2019 competition is as follows: The Protection of Migrants Under International Human Rights Law. Participants have the flexibility to choose any subject related to this topic, however, the scope of the submission must directly relate to this year’s topic or it will be disqualified. In addition, we would like to note we believe that international human rights law can be understood to include international humanitarian law and international criminal law. We will award two winners—one for a submission in English and one for a submission in Spanish—with a full scholarship (including lodging and transportation to and from Washington, D.C.) to complete the Certificate of Attendance or Diploma in the 2019 Program of Advanced Studies on Human Rights and Humanitarian Law which will take place from May 27 to June 14, 2019.
The deadline to enter your submission to the Human Rights Essay Award competition is February 1, 2019. Please note that ONLY participants with a law degree are eligible to enter this competition.
