Politics, Business & Culture in the Americas

The Right Stuff



Human rights activists and scholars are turning to a new research source in the hemisphere. In its first five years, SUR– International Journal on Human Rights has grown to become the region’s premier journal in human rights. One of its distinguishing features, according to managing editor Juana Kweitel, is its goal of fostering “dialogue between different regions of the Americas.”

The biannual journal draws material from the 130-plus members of the Brazil-based Sur – Human Rights University Network, which also happens to be its publisher. That has enabled it to tackle issues beyond the traditional scope of a human-rights publication. In its latest issue, for example, SUR features a special section on access to medicine. Content is free and available online in English, Spanish and Portuguese. Read it at: www.surjournal.org.
