Anti-Trafficking Review – CALL FOR PAPERS Special Issue ‘Human Rights at the Border’

The Anti-Trafficking Review calls for papers for a Special Issue ‘Human Rights at the Border’. Papers may address: criminalisation of irregular migration, operational understandings of human rights, (non)identification of violations, human rights implications of screening for potential trafficking cases, transparency and accountability, discriminatory immigration policies, privatisation of immigration functions, trafficking and migration prevention policies, links between increased border security and trafficking, interceptions and push-backs, broker/agents’ rights, and extraterritoriality. The Review welcomes articles that engage empirically grounded analysis of rights-based border-related programs. Also papers can more broadly address how borders and national security measures make migration more expensive and difficult, increasing risks, and, conversely, papers can address positive aspects of border interventions that may uphold human rights. 
The Review promotes a human rights based approach to anti-trafficking, and it aims to explore the issue in its broader context including gender analyses and intersections with labour and migrant rights. The journal offers a space for dialogue for those seeking to communicate new ideas and findings. Academics, practitioners and advocates, working for, with and including trafficked persons and migrants are invited to submit articles.
 
 ■Deadline for submission: 31 December 2012
■Word limit on articles: 4,000, including footnotes and abstract
