When domicide razed my city: a view from Homs in Syria
Homs was once the centre of the Syrian revolution. Today, 12 years on, much of the city remains scarred and deserted after years of siege and heavy bombardment. In this episode we speak to an architect from Homs about what the deliberate destruction of homes and neighbourhoods, known as domicide, does to people displaced by conflict – and his perspective on the Israeli bombardment of Gaza.
Featuring Ammar Azzouz, research fellow in geography and the environment at the University of Oxford in the UK.
