Realising Children's Rights (UKIERI Special Issue)

The UKIERI Special Issue (Volume 7, Number 1) is published online. The printed issue will be released in January 2011.

The EHRR is delighted to announce the publication of the UKIERI Special Issue: Realising Children's Rights: Multidisciplinary, Comparative and Practical Perspectives. The volume is a collection of papers from the United Kingdom-India Education and Research Initiative (UKIERI) conferences held in April 2008 and May 2009, at the University of Essex.

The papers in this anthology, written by some of the most renowned experts in children's rights, vividly expose the many forms in which the interests of the child are ignored, dismissed or overtly disrespected. They raise awareness of the difficulties in implementing children's rights and stress the need to challenge powerful interests and entrenched patterns of discrimination against children.

If you have any news about how and where Realising Children's Rights is being used, or know of any publicity that it has received, please let us know at ehrr@essex.ac.uk. If you would like to use or publicise Realising Children's Rights, please don't hesitate to email us.

Preventing Torture in the 21st Century - Part II (Special Issue 2010)

The Special Issue 2010 (Volume 6, Number 2) is published online and in print.

The EHRR is delighted to announce the publication of the 2010 Special Issue: Preventing Torture in the 21st Century - Part II. The issue unites superb scholarship with excellent practice-focused work to create a global account of initiatives on preventing torture. As an open-access journal, our publications are freely available and accessible to all. This is what makes Preventing Torture in the 21st Century unique. As the field is plagued by a lack of resources, it is vital that all interested actors can access scholarship about the many significant developments currently underway and so be in a position to engage with these exciting developments now.

Part I has already received a great deal of interest; it is part of the official reading list for all participants at the first meeting of the European NPM project (held in Padua this week). Participants include a representative from each European NPM as well as representatives from the SPT, CPT and APT, as well as the Council of Europe (the organising body) and the European Commission (the funding body).

It has also been publicised on the Association of Human Rights Institutions mailing list, the front-page of the University of California Berkeley Human Rights Centre, and it will shortly be publicised through the Department of European Research at the University of Genoa, Italy.

With regard to Part II, we've recently heard from one of our authors that this volume has been of interest to staff in the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights and staff in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, so we're delighted that the Special Issues are proving useful and the authors are getting the credit they so richly deserve for their fantastic contributions.

If you have any news about how and where Preventing Torture in the 21st Century is being used, or know of other publicity that it has received, please let us know at ehrr@essex.ac.uk. If you would like to use or publicise Preventing Torture in the 21st Century, please don't hesitate to email us.
