Voices of the Middle East and North Africa:"Egypt: Three years later; witing on Palestine"

Nearly three years after the fall of Mubarak, with the deep state and the military openly back in control, Egypt seems to have come full circle. How did that happen and what is the situation on the ground really like, as Egyptians go to the polls again to vote on a new proposed constitution? Vomena's Khalil Bendib speaks with Egyptian activist, blogger and journalist, Hossam el-Hamalawy.

Selma Debbage says she wanted to write a contemporary novel about the Palestinian struggle that considered what it meant for individuals to have to, on a daily basis, constantly weigh up the competing demands of the Palestinian cause and society, on the one hand, and their own individual wishes and desires on the other. “ I wanted to present a state of war, a state of being, a state of pressure, of siege.” Malihe Razazan speaks with Selam about her background shaped who she is today and how it has influenced her writing. Selam Dabbagh is the author of Out of It.
