Contributors are a key constituency of the Human Rights Brief and make up the majority of our subscribers throughout the 130 countries where the Brief is currently distributed. There are several ways that contributors can become actively involved with the Brief, while at the same time continuing to reach the audiences that matter most.

Write for the Brief

For over ten years the Brief has been committed to bringing together activists, academics, and human rights practitioners from around the world to share their voices and experiences. To submit an article for possible publication within the Brief’s print edition, please visit our submissions page.

Become an Online Perspectives Columnist

The Brief is constantly looking for established practitioners to write for its online Perspectives in Practice column. Headlining this column are some of the most well-known and respected human rights practitioners who have committed to contributing shorter-length academic discussions on key human rights issues throughout the calendar year. To become involved with the Perspectives column, please email our Managing Online Editor at: jshore(at)hrbrief(dot)org, with a corresponding letter of interest.

Use our Online Resource Directory

The Internet has enabled human rights and humanitarian law practitioners around the world access to an incredible wealth of information. With an explosion of access comes a corresponding level of information overload, and one of the goals of the Brief is to synthesize the sources of human rights and humanitarian law, providing access to many key human rights and humanitarian law databases in one central location.
