The Transnational Human Rights Review

About This Journal

The Transnational Human Rights Review (THR) is an academic journal that publishes articles in English that examine the transnational promotion and protection of human rights. It encourages the submission of articles that examine human rights in a variety of ways that could be viewed as “transnational” or which engage with questions relating in some way to transnational human rights normativity and practices. It contains scholarly articles written by authors from around the world. The journal is led by an international team of editors. The journal’s international advisory board is constituted by world renowned scholars and jurists. It provides broad policy advice to the editors and helps ensure that the journal maintains the highest scholarly standards.

The journal is published collaboratively once per annum by the Nigerian Institute of Advanced Legal Studies, Abuja, Nigeria and the Nathanson Centre for Transnational Human Rights, Crime, and Security of York University, Toronto, Canada. The quality of the journal is ensured through a double-blind peer-review process administered by its editors.

Normally, the journal will only consider publishing well researched and written articles of between 6000 and 10000 words in length; and book/case reviews of a shorter length.

Submissions, which should accord with the McGill Legal Style Guide, should be emailed to thr@osgoode.yorku.ca with copies to Uchechukwu Ngwaba (uche.ngwaba@gmail.com) and Basil Ugochukwu (ugochukwubc@yahoo.com).

The publishers wish to acknowledge the generous support of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada toward the publication of this journal.
