Peace Human Rights Governance (PHRG) is the new open-access scientific journal of the Human Rights Centre of the University of Padova, which prosecutes the ten-year experience developed by the Padova Centre through the review Pace Diritti Umani – Peace Human Rights (Marsilio Publishers, Venice, 2004-2013). The first issue of PHRG was launched in March 2017.
PHRG is an academic peer-reviewed journal published three times a year – in March, July and November – in English by Padova University Press. It constitutes an innovative scientific resource within the increasing and multi-faceted global human rights studies community, which aims to present original contributions, both theoretical and empirical, to current human rights issues while actively favouring the development of a solid multi- and inter-disciplinary, and multi-level approach to human rights research and dissemination.
PHRG welcomes unpublished research articles that address significant and original aspects of the relation of human rights and subsidiarity with several issues including, but not limited to, world order and governance issues, international law, politics and organisation, international and cosmopolitan democracy, national and European foreign policy, civil society transnational networking, city diplomacy, global citizenship, public policy, intercultural and interreligious dialogue, women’s human rights, the human right to peace, conflict transformation/conflict resolution, education processes and trafficking of human beings.
