Human Rights Revisited: Tackling race inequalities in health and social care

Special issue call for papers from International Journal of Human Rights in Healthcare

From 2015, the journal will be retitled as the International Journal of Human Rights in Healthcare (IJHRH).  To mark the journal’s new direction, the Editor is calling for papers for a special issue to publish as the first issue of 2015.  We are interested in empirical research articles, case studies, viewpoint articles, review or literature review articles and conceptual articles, covering (but not limited to) the following topics:
• Mainstreaming human rights in health and social care services
• Race equality as a human right in health and social care
• Improving healthcare outcomes for minority groups through human rights
• Mental health, race and human rights
• Human rights in Black and ethnic minority older people’s health and social care
• The Black healthcare community sector and human rights
The journal welcomes papers which use varied approaches, including discussion of theory, comparative studies, systematic evaluation of interventions, analysis of qualitative data and study of health and social care institutions and the political process. Papers should:
• clearly demonstrate the implications of the research
• provide evidence-rich information
• provoke reflection and support critical analysis of both challenges and strengths
• share examples of best practice and ‘what works’, including user perspectives
Submission instructions
• Manuscripts should be between 3,000 and 5,000 words and formatted according to the journal author guidelines.
