Citizens for Justice and Peace

Volunteer for Citizens of Justice & Peace

We invite submissions from lawyers, activists, students, journalists among others others engaged with issues of human rights, communalism, caste, and the law for both publication on Citizens for Justice and Peace and Sabrang India. We believe both the law and judicial directives need a critical lens. We invite responses to structural and everyday injustices through writing, videos, photos and storytelling.

Below are guidelines for submission, also outlining the broad categories of work we are interested in publishing.*

I) Documentation

  • Uploading Material on the Website
  • Archiving the Website

II) Writings
IN FACT : ‘In-facts’ (explore an issue factually through brief, analytical segments, divided into subheads. Examples of this can be found here and here)

III) Fact-sheets on human rights issues: Short readable material focusing on a single human rights issue, with facts, figures, legal developments, and executive and policy decisions. Examples of this can be found here, here and here.

IV) Primers on judgements/judicial decisions/tribunal decision; primers on issues arising out of judicial decisions; law commission reports (international, national) (please refer to our guide).

International Law and International jurisprudence on human rights issue will also require attention.

V) Research papers

  • Case Commentaries
  • Section Commentaries

Plagiarism of any kind will not be tolerated. Acknowledgment should always be made when other works/sources are used. Please respect the effort that other writers have put into their work and maintain honesty in your submissions.


Research volunteers

We invite law students, 3rd year onwards, from law schools across the country to work with us on researching various ongoing litigation on human rights issues, from within the courts and through policy decisions of the executive. The work would involve researching on-going litigation processes that CJP and other human rights organizations are involved in, especially those related to diversity, discrimination, land and forest rights, labour and violence, especially structuralviolence.
