Author Lawrence Joffe takes on advisory role at Arab Millennial

For those of you that follow Arab Millennial closely, you may already be aware of our good relationship with author, editor, writer and journalist Lawrence Joffe. Today, that relationship has taken a more formal capacity.

Lawrence Joffe writes articles for the Guardian, has edited a variety of books on Middle Eastern politics, and has authored his own Illustrated History of the Jewish People.

In his advisory capacity at Meretz UK and the Arab-Jewish Forum, and as a writer at BBC News, Lawrence has always been an active advocate for equal rights for Arabs and Jews across the globe.

He also actively supports a two-state solution in the Middle East, including equal sovereign and human rights for Palestinians.

At Arab Millennial, Lawrence will be assisting us with our strategy, manifesto, postcolonial theory of change, and practical, workable values that underpin us as an organisation.
