Trainer: Rachel Shabi

An award-winning journalist, author and broadcaster, I've reported widely on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Middle East region, from the war between Lebanon and Israel in 2006, the Gaza war of 2008 and the uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia. I've written for the Guardian, The New York Times, The London Times, The Independent, Al Jazeera English, Foreign Policy, The New Statesman and The National. Now based in the UK, I'm a regular commentator across broadcast media, including BBC News, Sky News, CNN and Al Jazeera English as well as BBC World Service radio. You can find me on news debates, papers reviews and programmes such as the Andrew Marr Show, BBC Newsnight, Dateline London, the Daily Politics and CNN Talk - bringing analysis and opinion on UK and world events.

I’m also a media and communications consultant, working with a variety of clients including international NGOs, think tanks and academics, to develop and enhance media and presentation skills.

This workshop is limited to six students and lunch will be provided.
