Call for Papers: Human Rights Law and International Development

Posted on 25 August 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Call for Nominations or Applications, Call for Papers, Human Rights, Opportunities, Poverty | Tags: , , , , , , |

We Can Do readers will note that the following announcement is not specifically soliciting articles on disability-related issues. But people who are involved with human rights law and international development in relation to people with disabilities may wish to use this opportunity to introduce a disability angle into this mainstream publication.

Call for Notes from Practitioners
Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal

Are you working on a developing issue within human rights law or using an innovative approach to the practice of international development? Are you practicing law in a particularly interesting area of human rights and/or development?

If so, you may be a good candidate to submit a Note from the Field to the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal. We are interested in reading well-written, well-sourced notes (about 20,000-25,000 words) that address a new development or fresh perspective on some aspect of human rights law and are written by an attorney practicing in that field. Writing a Note from the Field is a great opportunity for practitioners to publish their writing and shed light on little-known aspects of their practice.

Please send all submissions for Notes from the Field to Submissions will be accepted through September and evaluated on a rolling basis.

We Can Do received this notice from Catherine Townsend and from Joan Durocher. Interested individuals should please contact directly, NOT We Can Do. Thank you.

    The Mwanza Computer Literacy Project

    The Tusaidiane Disabilities Resources and Charity Organization of Tanzania (TDRCT) would like to improve computer literacy and self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities in Mwanza, Tanzania, and promote their empowerment.

    This organization is run by people who themselves have disabilities. I have known the man who founded this organization for some years. If his organization can quickly raise $5000 from 40 donors within a few days, then GlobalGiving will feature their organization on its website. This will enable them to attract more prospective funders. I have made a donation to them, I hope others will consider doing the same.
