Articles and Case Studies





Minority Rights Group special publication

Edited by Nicolas Salazar Sutil


Minority Rights Group International invites contributions for its upcoming Key Trends 2023 flagship publication (see here for past issues). With a readership of up to a million readers worldwide, MRG’s publications are an essential resource for individuals and groups interested in human rights, advocacy, policy, pressure group building and political decision-making.

Our upcoming issue will be devoted to the subject of water as it relates to the rights of minority and indigenous groups worldwide.


Increasingly, the life of natural water systems and the right to clean water is being threatened. The global water crisis has had a direct impact on the livelihood and sustenance of millions of people living in local communities during the past year, especially in the context of aggravated environmental degradation worldwide. Global climate change, changing patterns and disruption of water bodies especially (the drying of rivers, lakes, and springs) is compounded by failing systems of governance, policy, and jurisprudence, which have left local communities exposed to numerous and increasingly complex challenges.

This publication invites paid commissions in the form of three long articles (8,000 words) and around 20 short case studies (1,000 words each). Our fee is  € 250 for short case studies and € 1,750 for thematic chapters.


Please apply 


Deadline: December 1st, 2022.
