Ordinary Iranians are hurt by injustice in the Iranian judicial system and society, not only human rights activists and opposition figures, suggests the findings in a new Foreign Policy Centre publication. This latest edition of the Foreign Policy Centre's Iran Human Rights Review (IHRR) which focuses on justice brings together contributions on many aspects of legal and social justice in Iran and looks at topics often ignored in mainstream human rights and academic debates such as the state of regular prisons and the treatment of ordinary prisoners in Iran, access to healthcare and the state of labour rights in the country.

The Iran Human Rights Review:Justice is edited by FPC Senior Research Associate Tahirih Danesh and Dr Hadi Enayat (Aga Khan University), with a foreword by senior Canadian politician The Honourable Irwin Cotler PC, QC, MP. Contributors include: Nasser Asgary(Free Them Now), Stephen Aiello, Drewery Dyke (Amnesty International), Anna Enayat (St Anthony's College), Hedayat Matine-Daftary(Iran Tribunal), Dr Kavian S. Milani and Dr Shideh Rezai (Centre for Health and Human Rights), Dr Djavad Salehi-Isfahani (Virginia Tech) and Dr Silvia Tellenbach (Max Planck Institute for Foreign and International Criminal Law).
