on the world: a view on human rights
All articles on this website are by Aisha Maniar, a human rights activist and writer. I work with the London Guantánamo Campaign, which I set up in 2006, and other human rights organisations and campaigns, mainly on issues related to prisoner and minority rights, and torture.
I am a contributor to various publications, both print and electronic. I write about issues – usually related to human rights and civil liberties – that are of concern but are largely ignored in the mainstream. I am a professional freelance legal translator, so I also write about language and translation issues. This website contains possibly the most detailed coverage and analysis of the UK Ministry of Justice’s disastrous privatisation and outsourcing of deaf and foreign language court interpreting services in England and Wales since 2012.
