Nir Radio Australia

Greetings from  Australia. Here  for a lecture tour that actually began in Hong Kong  and its very good to be down-under again. I keep busy here and happy to share one conversation that was aired at  ABC this weekend : “What role does social media play in transporting ideas and giving moderate voices a chance to be heard in the Middle East?”

Steve Austin spoke with Dr Nir Boms from the Moshe Dayan Centre for Middle East studies in Tel Aviv, and Co-Founder of, a network of bloggers in the Middle East who focus on freedom of expression and the promotion of dialogue in the region.
