With the launch of its first art book, Human Rights Watch Lebanon is hoping to add an emotional and artistic element to its work in the region.According to Nadim Houry, director of the HRW terrorism and counterterrorism program, the project emerged from a conversation he had with Lebanese art expert and curator Saleh Barakat.By presenting human rights issues through the medium of art, HRW is hoping to encourage greater public engagement in their work.Similarly, Sioufi noted that art could also be a uniquely effective means of channeling widespread frustration.The project itself is the result of a partnership between HRW, the Human Rights Watch Beirut committee, and Saleh Barakat. All book sales will go toward HRW's work in Lebanon.
