Contribute to the Working Paper Series

The Rapoport Center is currently soliciting papers for its Working Paper Series (WPS). We encourage submissions from scholars of all disciplines as well as from activists and advocates. At present, we are particularly interested in papers that explore the relationship between labor, inequality, and human rights, in line with the Rapoport Center’s current thematic focus, but are also open to publishing papers on the topic of human rights more generally.
