Hosts Hala Gores and William Seaman speak with special guest, Mr. Raja Shehadeh, a Palestinian lawyer and writer who lives in Ramallah. He is a founder of the pioneering human rights organisation, Al-Haq, an
affiliate of the International Commission of Jurists, and the author of several books about international law, human rights and the Middle East. Shehadeh is the author of the highly praised Strangers in the House (2002), When the Bulbul Stopped Singing (2003) and Palestinian Walks: Forays into a Vanishing Landscape (2007), published by Profile Books. Strangers in the House and When the Bulbul Stopped Singing were described by The Economist as
distinctive and truly impressive', while he won the Orwell Prize for Palestinian Walks in 2008. The Orwell Prize is regarded as the pre-eminent British prize for political writing.
