THE WORLD THIS WEEK - Friday, November, 19th (part 2)

Who to blame for Ireland’s trouble? Certainly its banks, but how about the Germans who pressured the markets? Also in The World This Week, François Picard’s panel discusses the painful birth of democracy in Guinea’s first open multiparty poll, Washington’s call to the likes of France and Spain not to pay ransom money to Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb, and why the engagement of Kate and William is something of a revolution for royalty in Britain.

On the set :

  • Anne BAGAMERY, Senior Editor, International Herald Tribune
  • Anne-Elisabeth MOUTET, Columnist, Sunday Telegraph (William & Harry : dernière chance pour la couronne)
  • George KAZOLIAS, News Producer at AITV-RFO, Professor at the American University of Paris
  • Billie O’KADAMERI, Journalist, Africa specialist,  Radio France Internationale
