About

Today’s human rights networks are sophisticated, dense, and multifaceted. Access to the debates shaping these networks’ activities, however, is still restricted by language, money, ideology, and power.

Enter openGlobalRights, a multilingual, online forum dedicated to debating human rights work from all perspectives. We cultivate new and established authors, highlight cutting edge disagreements, and publish work by advocates, practitioners and scholars worldwide.

We take special care to highlight perspectives from the global South, and encourage debate across global cleavages of all kinds.

Our articles are short and readable, but contain a wealth of hyperlinks for further investigation.
