Conferences: ‘Human Rights and Change’ – Kadir Has Üniversitesi, Istanbul
The human rights sections of the American Political Science Association, the European Consortium for Political Research, the International Political Science Association, and the International Studies Association, are pleased to announce the publication of the panel program and the opening of registration for the third joint international conference on human rights, on the theme “Human Rights and Change” to take place 16-18 June 2014 at Kadir Has Üniversitesi in Istanbul. You can find the program, and a link to registration, here: http://www.isanet.org/Conferences/HRIstanbul2014/Program.aspx . We had an overwhelming response to our call for papers, resulting in an excellent and diverse program. Other elements of the program, including plenary sessions, will be posted in the coming weeks.
The conference is being organized in association with, and will be followed immediately by, the ACUNS Annual Meeting: “Global Governance: Engaging New Norms and Emerging Challenges”. The ACUNS annual meeting will also be held at Kadir Has University, from June 19 – 21. The paper proposal deadline for the ACUNS conference is 3 March. Individuals registered to attend either conference will be eligible to receive a 20% discount registration for the other conference.
