My name is Jihad Taha. I was born in Denmark and have lived in Lebanon for 8 years in the period 2002-2010. I have experienced the assassination of Hariri in 2005, the July war in 2006, internal political tensions in 2007 with the Arab University shootings and following repercussions. I am currently back in Denmark pursuing a master’s degree in development and international relations. My focus is primarily on refugees, Lebanese (and middle eastern) politics and Hezbollah. When not following the news and watching Lebanese political talkshows, you can find me eating a good shawarma at the local shawarma house.
