Call for Papers: Special Edition of Asia-Pacific Journal on Human Rights and the Law on the 2015 Andaman Sea Crisis

The Andrew & Renata Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law and the Asia-Pacific Journal on Human Rights and the Law invites proposals for articles to be included in a special edition of the Journal marking 5 years since the Andaman Sea ‘crisis’ of mid-2015. The purpose of this special edition is to provide high quality peer-reviewed scholarly articles reflecting on the events of 2015 and subsequent developments, including the exodus of Rohingya from Myanmar in 2017, from a range of national and regional perspectives. 
     Authors wishing to contribute an article are invited to submit a short abstract/proposal (max 1 page) for consideration for inclusion in the special edition. Proposals should include: 
• a working title;
• an overview of the article’s content and argument;
• a brief discussion of how the proposed article makes an original contribution or offers a new perspective to existing literature on the topic; and
• the name, affiliation and contact details of all authors.
   Proposals are due by 2 March 2020. Authors of successful proposals will be notified in mid-March 2020, and final articles will be due in July 2020. Articles should be 7000 words maximum in length (including references), plus an abstract, and should follow the OSCOLA (4th edn.) standard for the citation of legal authorities. Publication in the Journal will be subject to the outcome of the peer review process. The special edition will be published in early 2021. To submit your proposal and for more information, please contact Madeline Gleeson at
