Dear colleagues,


Peace and Conflict: The Journal of Peace Psychology is seeking submissions for a special issue on the psychologies of human rights, guest-edited by Gabriel Twose (Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues) and Christopher Cohrs (Jacobs University Bremen).  We are seeking empirical research, theoretical papers, and review articles on how the concept of human rights is used in psychological research and practice.  We understand human rights as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and welcome papers on different levels of analysis, including individuals’ attitudes and behaviors, relations of human rights to social injustice and inequality, and cultural variability in conceptions and correlates of human rights.  As such, we seek a global diversity of perspectives, particularly from the developing world.


Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:


1.      Attitudes to human rights, how they may be affected, and how they materialize in behavioral intentions and behavior concerning human rights (e.g., volunteering, advocacy, donations).


2.      Human rights in cultural and political contexts (e.g., cross-cultural differences in conceptions of human rights, the use of human rights for political agendas).


3.      Human rights in the practice of psychology and professional work of psychologists (e.g., interrogation/national security, human trafficking, therapeutic work in conflict settings).


The anticipated timeline for the special issue is as follows:
