About JHR

The Northwestern Journal of Human Rights (JHR) offers a forum for scholars, practitioners and law students to debate domestic and international human rights issues. By advancing human rights scholarship, the Journal aims to provide the legal community with the strongest arguments available to address human rights challenges. The Journal of Human Rights was founded in 2003 as the Journal of International Human Rights and adopted its present name in 2016 to better reflect its focus.
