Conflict Resolution: Nadifa Mohamed, Ashis Ray & Lalage Snow

Saturday 2 March, 2pm-3pm

Al Ras 1, InterContinental, DFC

How do we learn to live together – especially in the shadow of bitter conflicts?

Our panel of fiction and non-fiction writers discusses how we address, and move on from conflict and build a better world – and what we can learn from people who find personal peace amid violence.

Nadifa Mohamed is the author of the highly acclaimed novel The Orchard of Lost Souls, which was praised for showing how “the echo of war reverberates down the generations.” She was recently announced as a 2018 recipient of an Arts and Literary Arts Fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature.

Ashis Ray is an award-winning broadcaster and journalist, the longest-serving Indian foreign correspondent and author of Laid to Rest: The Controversy Over Subhas Chandra Bose’s Death. He will discuss the prospects for resolution to the ongoing Kashmir crisis.

Lalage Snow is an award-winning photojournalist, writer and filmmaker who has covered war and unrest in the Middle East and Afghanistan since 2007. Her book War Gardens explores current conflicts through the peaceful act of gardening, a topic also covered in her BBC documentary The Gardeners of Kabul.
