THE WORLD THIS WEEK

Our panel of Paris-based journalists review the week’s international news: the stories that made the headlines and also those you may have missed! Join us every Friday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Latest update : 2013-11-25

The World This Week - November 22nd, 2013

The 50th anniversary of President Kennedy’s assassination also means a half-century of conspiracy theories. François Picard’s panel sorts the wheat from the chaff on JFK and also on the nuclear bargaining with Iran, the shooter who had all of Paris on tenterhooks and the political significance of France’s heroic qualification for the 2014 World Cup.

With our guests:

  • Craig Copetas, Correspondent-at-large, Quartz/The Atlantic Group
  • Annette Lévy-Willard, Reporter for Libération
  • Marc Burleigh, AFP journalist based in Paris
  • Aude Baron, Editor-in-chief "Le Plus-Nouvel Observateur"
