How does dialogue help bring peace between Israelis and Palestinians?

In this episode, host Nelufar Hedayat examines the power and limitations of dialogue with three people working to create justice and equality between Israelis and Palestinians.

She speaks with rapper Tamer Nafar, a Palestinian who lives in Israel, about how he uses music to call attention to the lives of his fellow Palestinians in Israel. Then she speaks with Hussein Agha, an advisor to Palestinian leaders who has worked on peace negotiations, about the need to translate dialogue into action. Finally, she talks to Robi Damelin, an Israeli activist who brings Palestinians and Israelis together through shared grief and empathy.

About Course Correction:  Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing so in the second season of Doha Debates' podcast Course Correction, host Nelufar Hedayat is trying to open her mind — to people she disagrees with. Many of the world's biggest issues are also the most polarizing, so in each episode, Hedayat explores one of those topics and talks to people who challenge her views. She’ll talk to activists, authors, scientists and even a former head of state, looking for advice on how to be more inclusive of people whose views she opposes. And in each episode, she'll work to identify solutions and bridge gaps on divisive issues like reparations and race, COVID policy and the limits of free speech.  See All Episodes
