    Is China intent on remaking the world order?

    On this month's podcast we're joined by Le Monde diplomatique's new Asia head, Renaud Lambert, who writes in the current edition of the paper about China's global ambitions (‘China: the invention of the roadmap to global power').

    Our guest on this month's podcast is Eric Alterman, CUNY Distinguished Professor of English at Brooklyn College and author of We Are Not One: A History of America's Fight Over Israel (2022).

    In this month's podcast, our guest is Vicken Cheterian, who teaches history and international relations at the University of Geneva. In the December edition of the paper he writes about Azerbaijan's recent military offensive to seize control of the disputed enclave of Nagorno-Karabakh (‘Armenia stands alone'). When war last broke out between Armenia and Azerbaijan, in 2020, Russia intervened. This time, it allowed ethnic cleansing of Armenians to proceed. In the interview, Cheterian explains (...)

    In this month's podcast, journalist and South East Asia specialist Christine Chaumeau discusses how the Cambodian capital has been transformed over the last 20 years, with a mushrooming of skyscrapers and private, gated developments, which she writes about in the October edition of the paper (‘Phnom Penh: rising skyline, disappearing lakes'). Under outgoing prime minister Hun Sen, the country experienced rapid economic growth, but his exercise of power was ruthless, and opponents of the (...)
