ABOUT THIS BOOK
PUBLICATION DATE: September 5, 2019
Welcome to Constitution Street, Edinburgh. The street, like the world at large, is in a moment of flux. Part memoir, part social history and a call to action, Constitution Street is an antidote to an age of personal and political anxiety. Here, the real-life stories on one street, shared with Jemma Neville and framed by her own, reveal the courage, perseverance and capacity for love within us all.
Neighbour by neighbour, street by street, reclaiming our human rights, as something too important to be left solely to lawyers and politicians, will unite us with our sense of belonging and common purpose.
Jemma Neville has a professional background in human rights law. She is Director of arts charity, Voluntary Arts Scotland, and was the inaugural Community Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Studies in Humanities, University of Edinburgh. Jemma has written for a range of print and broadcast media and was shortlisted for the Guardian International Development Journalism Award. @jemma_tweets
