The first issue of the Canadian Journal of Human Rights has just recently been published. The CJHR is a new academic journal from the Robson Hall Faculty of Law of the University of Manitoba. An interdisciplinary, peer-reviwed journal of human rights law and policy with a national and international scope, it is the first and only journal of its kind in Canada.
As the Canadian Museum for Human Rights nears completion in Winnipeg, the CJHR seeks to attract human rights research from around the world. Its editors are committed to exploring varied areas of research from diverse perspectives — from queer rights in Africa and Aboriginal rights in Australia to the European Court of Human Rights and Human Rights tribunals in Canada.
In addition to being available open-access on the web (for which its editors are to be commended), the journal is also available on HeinOnline.
