The Stanford Journal of International Law welcomes proposals for articles and speakers for its November 2011 symposium on the subject of the right to democracy.
Symposium Chair Elizabeth Espinosa, a member of Stanford's Class of 2012 and Director of Curriculum for its Afghanistan Legal Education Project, writes:
We wish to gather a number of speakers and writers to discuss whether there is a right to democracy and to examine the issue from a variety of perspectives, including what such a right would entail, the response of existing regimes to demands for democracy, and human rights and the responsibility to protect. We are hoping to examine the topic in light of the current protests and conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa.
Persons who wish to present a paper or have ideas of topics or speakers should contact Elizabeth no later than June 10, 2011, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
