Focus and Scope

The Journal of South East Asian Human Rights (JSEAHR) is an academic journal jointly organized and operated by the Centre for Human Rights, Multiculturalism and Migration (CHRM2), based out of the University of Jember and the Indonesian Consortium for Human Rights Lecturers (SEPAHAM).

In keeping with its commitment to distribute and disseminate information regarding human rights to as broad an audience as possible, the JSEAHR allows free and open access to all of its published works. 

The JSEAHR is primarily focused on issues related to labor and migrant rights, political rights, religious freedom, health care, minority rights, indigenous rights, social rights, cultural rights, educational rights, and various additional human rights issues. 

The JSEAHR welcomes the submission of articles on a wide range of topics, assuming the academic work pertains to human rights in Southeast Asia, South Asia, East Asia and beyond. The first year of its publication, the journal focused on the issue of human rights in only Southeast Asia, but then expanded its focus to beyond, to ensure that JSEAHR responds to a wide array of contemporary human rights issues that occur in this hemisphere.

In the hope that this journal eventually serves as a platform for discussion and debate, a plurality of opinions and perspectives are also welcomed. For more information about JSEAHR focus and scope, please feel free to send any inquiries to the email provided on the contact page.
