HARDtalk: Yasser Abu Jamei

this morning (wednesday 26th), 4.30-4.55am (repeated 12.30am), on bbc news tv (and repeated 4.06am 3.06pm and 8.06pm on bbc world service radio)

dr yasser abu jamei – mental health in gaza (interviewed by stephen sackur) (in the hardtalk series)

“HARDtalk’s Stephen Sackur speaks to Dr Yasser Abu Jamei, director of Gaza’s biggest mental health program. The past few days have seen rising tension in Gaza – Islamist militants fired rockets into Israel; the Israelis responded with air strikes aimed at the Islamic Jihad group. Hardly unusual and certainly not the stuff of international headlines but that in itself is telling. In Gaza conflict is the norm, so too an economic blockade that has long choked the economy.

What happens to a people living with trauma and collective despair?”
