Inspired by the better understanding, diffusion and implementation of fundamental human rights, the University of Malta’s Human Rights Platform is delighted to be launching the third edition of the Human Rights Platform Award.
It is, to this end, accepting academic texts, including dissertations, academic articles, chapters in books, and essays, whether published or accepted for publication at the time of adjudication, as entries, or nominations for this Award.
The work needs to display scientific rigour and needs to have been authored over the last five years.
A maximum of one submission in one’s own name, or in the name of any co-authors upon their consent, may be submitted.
The recipient of the Human Rights Platform Award 2020 will be given a memento and invited to deliver a public lecture on behalf of the Human Rights Platform.
Entries are to be submitted electronically (in PDF format) to the Human Rights Platform Committee by 31 August 2020, through this submission form.
Further information may be sought via email.
The Human Rights Law Platform was set up by the University of Malta Senate in 2013 as the Human Rights programme (HRP). The Platform aims to undertake, promote, facilitate and coordinate the study of human rights. It also collaborates with local and foreign entities, programmes and individuals working in human rights for research purposes, to encourage publications on the matter, and to publish the Mediterranean Human Rights Review.
