“It is a privilege to be on the Board of the British Institute of Human Rights, especially in these troubled times. Defending Human Rights in the UK should be a superfluous activity but sadly is as important now as it has ever been. The practical support BIHR provides to people working on the frontline is invaluable in defending the rights of everyone in the UK so they can lead lives of dignity and purpose.”
