    Special Issue on Human Rights and Social Justice

    On the surface, human rights are of course equal, and equality is the essential attribute of human rights. Many people equate equality with justice, understand justice as equality, and regard equality as the centralization of justice. The universal value view is that equality is the non-derivative goal of the center of justice and the highest value of social justice. A fair society must provide equal opportunities for all members. However, in real life, scholars are not keen on arguing why equality is the highest value of justice, but arguing about how to understand equality and how to implement equality most effectively.

    In this special issue, we intend to invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original researches and review articles on exploring human rights and social justice. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Fundamental rights of citizens
    • Sound legal system
    • The principles of sociajustice
    • The significance of social justice
    • Justice and efficiency
    • War and conflict
    • Social work and environment

    Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.

    Please kindly notice that the “Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue – Human Rights and Social Justice” should be chosen during your submission.
