University of Manitoba Press announced the formation of a new Human Rights and Social Justice series in 2013.
Headed by series co-editors Karen Busby and Rhonda Hinther, the Human Rights and Social Justice series publishes work that explores the quest for social justice and the basic rights and freedoms to which all human beings are entitled, including civil, political, economic, social, collective and cultural rights. Particular emphasis is placed on works considering the denial or the realization of human rights and social justice. The series publishes books that are both academically rigorous and accessible to the public.
Karen Busby is a professor of law at the University of Manitoba and director of the university’s Centre for Human Rights Research.
Rhonda Hinther is former director of research and curation at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
The editors are actively acquiring new titles for inclusion in the series and welcome all enquiries and proposals. Please feel free to contact them directly at Karen.Busby@umanitoba.ca or RHinther@gmail.com.
The first book published in the series: The Idea of a Human Rights Museum
