Kirsty Young‘s castaway this week is the Palestinian author and human rights activist, Raja Shehadeh.
Born in Ramallah in the West Bank, his life and writing has been dominated by displacement, struggle and a search for justice.
His father was murdered in 1985 and aside from chronicling the unhappy history of his family and his homeland, he’s also co-founded the Palestinian human rights organisation Al-Haq – which monitors and documents violations by all sides in the Middle East conflict, publishing reports and detailed legal analysis on its findings.
