Biography

Locally, he has been a regular speaker at the Inter-Cultural Leadership School organised to promote greater understanding between young people in leadership positions from different ethnic backgrounds working in and around Bradford and is also invited regularly by community groups in and around Bradford to talk about various aspects of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In the last year, two of his postgraduate students were awarded Phds; one looked at the politics of water between Israel and the Palestinians and the other looked at the role of the Arab League and why it has failed as a Regional Security Organisation.
