The Middle East is one of the most turbulent regions in the world. Conflicts throughout countries in the region create rampant human rights abuses. In this episode, we are joined by Sarah Leah Whitson, the executive director of Human Rights Watch’s Middle East and North Africa Division. We discuss in-depth the a few of the most problematic conflicts in the Middle East. From the Israel-Palestine disputes to the seemingly never ending war in Yemen we sort through it all. Additionally, Sarah describes the intense problems identity politics has caused throughout the Middle East.
