The Center for Civil and Rights (CCHR) at the University of Notre Dame, in partnership with Notre Dame’s Journal of International and Comparative Law, announces its 2018 Prize for Outstanding Scholarship.
Submissions are now being accepted for papers investigating the intersection of International Human Rights Law and Catholic Social Teaching. Authors may approach the subject from a variety of perspectives, the goal being to illuminate the relationship between the two bodies of thought. Preference will be given to papers that make use of Convocate, CCHR’s online research portal for simultaneous examination of documents from both disciplines. More on Convocate can be found here.
The winning submission will be published on Convocate, and will be invited to publish on volume 9 of Notre Dame’s Journal of International and Comparative Law. The competition winner will also receive a $1,000 cash prize.
Submissions must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 6, 2018.
The winning submission will be announced by April 30, 2018.
