Defending Hope: Dispatches from the front lines in Palestine and Israel

Eion Murray

Published in association with Dublin-based human rights charity Front Line Defenders, Defending Hope is a moving and inspiring collection of accounts from lawyers, activists and journalists with first-hand experience of the conflict in Palestine. With testimony from both Palestinian and Israeli activists, Defending Hope seeks to offer a hopeful counter-narrative to many of the common misconceptions about Palestine, with the contributors unified in their quest to find hope in an otherwise bleak landscape by choosing non-violence, compassion and optimism as a means of overcoming divisions. With the royalty from this book going towards protecting human rights activists, including the contributing writers who are still active in Palestine, Defending Hope asks of its readers to listen without prejudice, to become actively engaged in tackling injustice and to learn from both sides of every story.

Front Line Defenders is an Irish based human rights organisation founded in 2001 to protect human rights defenders at risk in war-torn countries and those who work to uphold the human rights of others as outlined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
