    Claude Joseph: Is Haiti's democracy at risk? | Talk to Al Jazeera

    President Jovenel Moïse has been accused of illegally extending his time in power. Opposition parties say the Haitian leader should have stepped down last month, but he says he can remain until 2022 after presidential elections are held this year.

    The dispute has been running since Moïse was voted into office in 2015 in an election that was later cancelled over allegations of fraud. He was voted in again a year later. Protests have turned violent, and there is no sign of anyone backing down.

    So, is Moïse's government legitimate? The foreign minister of Haiti, Claude Joseph, talks to Al Jazeera.

    Mohamed Abdirizak: Is Somalia's government legitimate? | Talk to Al Jazeera

    Mohamed Abdirizak: Is Somalia's government legitimate? | Talk to Al Jazeera

    After 30 years of chaos and conflict, this was going to be a critical year for Somalia. It was supposed to be the first one-person-one-vote election in 50 years. However, in September, that plan was abandoned and replaced with indirect elections for Parliament in December and for the president on February 8. Neither happened.

    Now, the official time in office of President Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has come on an end. And without political agreement, opposition leaders have declared Farmaajo’s government illegitimate.

    So, what is next for Somalia? Will the government remain in office? Or will there be a power vacuum? Somalia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohamed Abdirizak talks to Al Jazeera.

    Wikimedia CEO: Technology could be used for great harm | Talk to Al Jazeera

    With 55 million articles in more than 300 languages, Wikipedia attracts 1.7 billion visitors every month.

    The freely editable content project is supported by the Wikimedia Foundation. As of 2020, the foundation employs more than 300 people and has annual revenues of more than $100m.

    But at a time when truth is under assault like never before, what role does Wikipedia play in the media ecosystem? What steps is it taking to counter misinformation? And when it comes to hate speech online - should technology giants and social media platforms be the ones to moderate that?

    We speak to Katherine Maher, the CEO of Wikimedia.

    Ferid Belhaj: Is there hope for the economies in the MENA region? | Talk to Al Jazeera

    The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) accounts for a large share of the world’s petroleum production and exports.

    But despite the region’s natural wealth, years of conflict and turmoil have triggered many political and economic challenges: from the Arab Spring to civil wars in Syria, Iraq, Libya and Yemen; from the fragile economies of Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    So, is there hope for the economies in the region? And how can they find a way forward? We speak to Ferid Belhaj, the World Bank vice president for the MENA region.

    Diana Trujillo: From Colombia to Mars | Talk to Al Jazeera

    We often hear people say: "The sky is the limit.”

    But some choose to chase their dreams far beyond that.

    One of them is NASA’s aerospace engineer Diana Trujillo.

    At just 17, Diana packed her bags and, without speaking any English and only $300 in her pocket, migrated to the United States.

    Trujillo is now a lead engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

    But how did she get there? And how has her journey as an immigrant influenced her work?

    NASA’s aerospace engineer Diana Trujillo talks to Al Jazeera.
