'W(h)ither Human Rights?' Proceedings from the 25th Annual Conference of the Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand (LSAANZ).
Edited by Deirdre Howard-Wagner
The 25th Annual Conference of the Law and Society Association of Australia and New Zealand (LSAANZ) was held at the University of Sydney from 10-12 December 2008 to mark the 60th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
The conference was hosted by the Law and Society Association Australia and New Zealand (LSAANZ) and sponsored by the School of Social and Political Sciences and the Sydney Law School, University of Sydney, in collaboration with the School of Law, University of Western Sydney.
Participants were invited to submit a refereed conference paper on topics that interrogate the post-declaration progress of human rights from a multitude of disciplinary perspectives.
The papers collected here were peer-reviewed to DEEWR standards (two reviewers per paper) by colleagues from around Australia and overseas. The review process for the proceedings was separate from the review process for acceptance of abstracts for the actual conference presentations. Deirdre Howard-Wagner edited and compiled the final versions, and would like to thank Selda Dagistanli for coordinating the review process and all those who gave their time to act as reviewers.
