Omar Robert Hamilton, Sanaa Seif & Ahdaf Soueif: A Decade of Resistance

Egyptian writer and political activist Alaa Abd el-Fattah's British citizenship was ratified in December 2021 while he was in an Egyptian prison, where he has been detained, almost continuously, since 2013. Today, his translators and family members Omar Robert Hamilton, Sanaa Seif and Adhaf Soueif, share his collection of writing You Have Not Yet Been Defeated. They discuss the principles of building democracy and the reality of living under dictatorship with chair Esa Aldegheri.
