The Working Papers Series:
This site is dedicated to the promotion of scholarly work on political apologies and reparations. Scholars working on any aspect of these two topics are invited to submit papers for consideration for posting on this site. Authors will normally be informed within two months of receipt as to whether their paper will be posted. We are willing to post papers in languages other than English, when we have the capacity to do so, and will definitely post papers in French. However, we do require an English-language abstract.
Rhoda E. Howard-Hassmann, Canada Research Chair in International Human Rights at Wilfrid Laurier University, is Editor of this working papers series. Matt James, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of Victoria, and Graham Dodds, Assistant Professor of Political Science, Concordia University, are Associate Editors. Michael Lisetto-Smith is Managing Editor. Normally, the academic Editors will decide whether to post a paper; however, they may at their discretion send the papers to external reviewers.
This site is supported by funds from Dr. Howard-Hassmann's Canada Research Chair.
