In the introduction to her recently published best-selling book ‘On Liberty’ Shami writes:

‘‘These are challenging times for human rights. The ill-judged and misnamed ‘War on Terror’ has morphed into a permanent state of exception becoming the rule.

This has been triggered not only by horrific crimes against people and the terror of collapsing towers but by collapsing markets, economies and institutions. No one is above the law.

Yet some have readily decided that the rule of law is too exacting and human rights principles too expensive in times of insecurity and austerity.”

Corin Redgrave was not only an outstanding artist but an inspirational, passionate and steadfast campaigner for human rights. For over 40 years Corin worked for and alongside those in struggle against injustice whether in the labour and trade union movement or in individual cases of miscarriages of justice and for those detained without trial in Guantanamo. No case was too big or too small.
