    The fate of China's many languages

    Although Mandarin is the national language of China, it remains incomprehensible to 20% of the population. Beijing is now pushing the use of Mandarin hard among ethnic minorities, but while fluency in the common tongue brings economic benefits, what is the cost to the native languages and identities of those affected? Dr Lewis Mayo and Dr Gerald Roche discuss the state of play for languages in China. Presented by Peter Clarke.

    Can Australia do better in its relations with China?

    China has been punishing Australia via trade sanctions and social media for actions taken by Australia's government that Beijing regards as part of a US-led strategy to contain its rise. How is Australia to balance its loyalty to its longtime ally, the United States, with the demands of its biggest economic partner, the ascendant China? Former Australian ambassador to China, Dr Geoff Raby, examines how Australia can navigate the uncharted waters of a changing global order. Presented by Ali Moore.

What are the concerns over how this omnibus law was passed, and who are the real winners and losers?

    Who decides who's Muslim in modern Islamic states?

    The constitutions of both Pakistan and Malaysia enshrine Islam as the state religion while also protecting individuals' rights to freedom of worship. So how do their seemingly parallel legal systems of common law and Sharia jurisprudence operate when it comes to matters of Muslim identity? Dr Matthew Nelson from Asia Institute and Dr Dian Shah from the National University of Singapore Law School examine the question of who decides who is -- and who must be -- a Muslim. Presented by Ali Moore.
