Raja Shehadeh, the award-winning human rights lawyer from Ramallah and author of Palestinian Walks, returns to Jewish Book Week to explore the politics of language and the language of politics with Hay Festival director Peter Florence. Language can be as effective as any weapon – a potent force that can engineer outcomes, exacerbate tensions and obstruct peace. Raja Shehadeh and Peter Florence will reflect on how it might be made possible for Israelis and Palestinians to attain a language of peace.
