Call for Papers: 3rd Business and Human Rights Young Researchers Summit

In April 2018, the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University’s Stern School of Business, the Institute for Business Ethics at University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and the Business and Human Rights Journal will host the 3rd Business and Human Rights Young Researchers Summit in New York. The organisers are offering financial support to participants for what promises to be a very worthwhile event:

The Summit will bring together approximately 10-15 excellent PhD students and early post-doc researchers (cut-off is one year after graduation) who engage in research in the business and human rights field. The objective is for participants to present their research project in an interdisciplinary, collaborative workshop setting. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to apply including ethics, law, business, and global affairs. Submission from non-law disciplines are particularly welcome. The papers should outline research-in-progress and must be unpublished at the time of presentation. We encourage submissions from all parts of the world and strive for gender balance in our selection.

Those interested in applying should submit an abstract of no more than 600 words to, and include your name, affiliation, contact information, and CV. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 1 November 2017.
