Few names are so closely connected with the cause of human
rights as that of Mary Robinson. As former President of Ireland,
she was ideally positioned for passionately and eloquently arguing
the case for human rights around the world. Over five tumultuous
years that included the tragic events of 9/11, she offered moral
leadership and vision to the global human rights movement. This
volume is a unique account in Robinson's own words of her campaigns
as United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
A Voice for Human Rights offers an edited collection of
Robinson's public addresses, given between 1997 and 2002, when she
served as High Commissioner. The book also provides the first
in-depth account of the work of the Office of High Commissioner for
Human Rights. With a foreword by Kofi Annan and an afterword by
Louise Arbour, the current High Commissioner for Human Rights, the
book will be of interest to all concerned with international human
rights, international relations, development, and politics.
