more details
IJHRCS initiates and fosters academic dialogue concerning the modern subjects of constitutional law and human rights protection from a global perspective. It provides novel and original material in the fields of current economic and political crises, globalised democratic governance, human rights public policies, the theory and philosophy of rights, comparative constitutional law and the methodology of law.
In a multicultural and globalised era, IJHRCS aims to provide for the international academic audience a forum for a fruitful, ongoing and updated dialogue on the contours of modern constitutionalism by bringing together theory and praxis. Thus one the main objectives of the journal is to establish the communication between academics and policy makers, researchers and legal practitioners as well as politicians.
IJHRCS provides a vehicle to help academics, researchers, policy makers, legal practitioners, law students, politicians and the judiciary working in the fields of human rights theory and protection and constitutional studies to disseminate information, innovative argumentation and updated academic knowledge.
IJHRCS publishes original papers, conference reports, jurisprudence, book reviews, notes and commentaries. Special issues devoted to important topics of human rights and constitutional studies will occasionally be published.
