How can hope flourish from the devastation of war, oppression, and forced migration?

For the people featured in this book, this is not a philosophical question – it is a lived reality. Drawn from first-hand experience of violent conflict and displacement, the stories in this book belong to three extraordinary individuals who found a path to hope through action in the face of violence.

Ideal reading for academics, artists, and activists who are working around issues of social justice, Creative Resistance highlights the extraordinary actions of ordinary people in dark times.

1: The role of storytelling and narrative in transformation
2: Monirah Hashemi: Who lights the stars?
3: Halleh Ghorashi: From revolutionary to engaged academic
4: Diala Brisly: ’The braver you are, the more you will see’
5: Can stories inspire response-ability?

Cindy Horst PhD is Research Professor in Migration and Refugee Studies and co-director of the PRIO Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict.
