The Activist - Call for Editorial Team and Articles/Photographs

January 29, 2018

Dear CEU Community,


Human RightS Initiative is pleased to announce a call for the editorial team, as well as abstracts and photographs for the 15th issue of The Activist. This is HRSI’s annual student-led journal, and is aimed at providing CEU students with an opportunity to publish their works that are related to the topic of human rights, and to gain experience in publishing and editing processes. Students from all departments are welcome.


If you are interested in joining the EDITORIAL TEAM (including editors-in-chief, associate editors, proofreaders, and a graphic designer), please write an email to to express your interest by Friday 16 Feb.


If you are interested in getting your WORK published, please write an email to by Mon 25 Feb and include the title and an abstract of the article / a short description of the photograph(s) that you would like to contribute to the journal in your email. Abstracts for articles should be 250-300 words in length. Please note that while you can submit more than one abstracts, in general we can only feature one article per author in the final publication. Selected contributors will be informed separately later about details on the submission of full articles. Articles should be approximately 900 words in length. The Activist is not an academic journal per se, so you can also send abstracts for opinion-style articles. In any case, sources should be cited.


Submissions might concern, but are not limited to, the following topics:


Environment and Human Rights

Gender and Human Rights

Arts and Human Rights

Health and Human Rights

Human Rights in Policy

Ethics and Human Rights

Current Affairs


Photographs should be original and of adequate resolution for printing.


You can access previous issues of the journal here.


We look forward to hearing from you.
