Matthew Gilmore

ANNOUNCING: H-Human-Rights: H-Net Network on Human Rights
Member of: H-Net: Humanities and Social Sciences Online

On the heels of a very successful launch of H-Memory, H-Net proudly
its newest addition, in cooperation with the Human Rights section of the
International Studies Association.

H-Human-Rights is a discussion network for scholars, policymakers,
authors, historians, and other interested people devoted to the history,
analysis, theory, and practice of human rights. It is a network developed
maintained by the Human Rights Section of the International Studies
although it is open to all.

The purpose of HR-ISA, and of the H-Human-Rights Network, is to
Encourage multidisciplinary debate, scholarship and teaching in the area of
human rights. This includes those in the disciplines of political science,
history, philosophy, economics, sociology, anthropology, and other related
fields. It will foster discussion and other interaction between members of
ISA, as well as those outside of the ISA, with a view toward enhancing
academic research, policy development and teaching in the broad and varied
of human rights and related issues.

This list is intended to expand discussion of a variety of human rights
for example: war crimes, crimes against humanity, torture, and other
violations of human rights, and accountability for these, as well as civil
political rights, economic, social, and cultural rights, rights of women
rights of the child, and many more conventional and customary rights, as
as the political and institutional structures involved in addressing human

The list, like HR-ISA, is not focused upon activism or advocacy of a
particular viewpoint or advocacy with reference to a particular concrete
situation, although discussion and analysis of particular situations are
obviously welcome. Postings related to demonstrations, calls to action, and
other issue activism are not allowed.

Suggestions for additions are welcome.

The goals of H-Net lists are to enable scholars to easily communicate
research and teaching interests; to discuss new approaches, methods and
of analysis; to share information on electronic databases; and to test new
ideas and share comments on the literature in their fields. All network
messages are permanently archived and searchable.

Like all H-Net lists, H-Human-Rights is moderated to edit out material
that, in
the editors' opinion, is not germane to the list, involves technical
(such as subscription management requests), is inflammatory, or violates
evolving, yet common, standards of Internet etiquette. H-Net's procedure
resolving disputes over list editorial practices is Article II, Section
of our bylaws, located at:
