HRSI Call for Editors, Abstracts, Photos for The Activist

Human RightS Initiative is pleased to announce a call for the editorial team, as well as abstracts and photographs for the 14th issue of The Activist. This annual HRSI student-led journal is aimed at providing CEU students with an opportunity to publish their works that are related to the topic of human rights, and to gain experience in publishing and editing processes. Students from all departments are welcome.

If you are interested in joining the editorial team (including editors-in-chief, associate editors, proofreaders, and a graphic designer), please write an email to to express your interest by Thursday, February 16.

If you are interested in getting your work published, please write an email to by Monday, February 27 and include the title and an abstract of the article / a short description of the photograph(s) that you would like to contribute to the journal in your email. Abstracts for articles should be 250-300 words in length. Please note that while you can submit more than one abstracts, in general we can only feature one article per author in the final publication. Selected contributors will be informed separately later about details on the submission of full articles. Articles should be approximately 900 words in length. The Activist is not an academic journal per se, so you can also send abstracts for the opinion-style articles. In any case, sources should be cited. Photographs should be original and of adequate resolution for printing.

Submissions might concern, but are not limited to, the following topics:

Environment and Human Rights
Gender and Human Rights
Arts and Human Rights
Health and Human Rights
Human Rights in Policy
Ethics and Human Rights
Current Affairs
