The volume will include contributors from Harvard University and many european institutions, and will be published next year by Palgrave Macmillan.

It will be focused on impact of different types of transformations (of political, social, economic, cultural or demographic nature) on the sphere of human rights and international protection of human rights (on international, national as well as social level), and will cover both theoretical problems and practical researches (in interdisciplinary perspective).

The editors invite potential contributors from the fields of human rights,
international law, law, politics (international studies), economics, psychology, sociology, geography, ethnography, demography, and culture, both scholars and practicioners. Prospective contributors are invited to submit their initial proposals (500 words) and short CV to the editors by May 30, 2011.

The invited essays (6000-9000 words) are to be submitted by September 30, 2011. The language of the proposed publication is English.
