Shaped By War: An Iraqi Journalist in Dubai
A conversation with Iraqi journalist Ali Al Shouk on Iraq before the invasion, life after the invasion, and the series of events that brought him to Dubai. Although it was not his original intention to become a journalist, war and life in general somehow pushed Ali Al Shouk in that direction. After a decade of being a reporter first in Baghdad and now in Dubai, it is journalism that has become his natural calling. On today's program we hear from Ali on Iraq, war, migration, and the role of the media in this part of the world.
