The Yale Human Rights & Development Law Journal aims to explore the tension and congruence between human rights and development. There is much discussion and debate over what these concepts mean and how they interrelate. These issues demand holistic, cross-cutting analysis, and so the Journal encourages writings that draw upon various academic disciplines, such as political science, public policy, economics, health and sociology.
We feature pieces representing the broadest possible range of perspectives. We welcome pieces that focus on different fields within the law, such as constitutional law, economic regulation, international law, and institutional reform, as well as pieces dealing with issues that arise in national (including U.S.), regional, and international contexts, in both the "industrialized" and the "developing" world.
