In this episode of the Occupied Thoughts podcast, FMEP’s Lara Friedman speaks with Amnesty International’s Saleh Hijazi about the root causes of the violence currently in the headlines — i.e., Israel’s policy of apartheid, and the structural violence they impose against Palestinians. and why Amnesty International is calling for an end to the “cycle of impunity” that supports and enables it.
Saleh Hijazi is Amnesty International (UK)’s Deputy Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa. He is also advisor to Al-Quds University Human Rights Clinic where he worked as academic coordinator and lecturer, and a policy member at Al-Shabaka. Saleh holds a master’s degree in human rights from the University of Essex and a bachelor’s degree in philosophy and political science from Lawrence University. Lara Friedman is the President of the Foundation for Middle East Peace (FMEP).
