The World This Week - November 29th, 2013

What a week it's been for Russian President Vladimir Putin, who could afford to keep the Pope waiting on his trip to Rome - this after getting Ukraine's president to back out of a treaty with the European Union. Also, what to make of France's decision to send fresh troops to the Central African Republic? And should the law punish the prostitute, or fine the client? François Picard and his panel discuss all this, and more.

  • Vivienne WALT, Time Magazine;
  • Anne PENKETH, The Independent;
  • Ulrike KOLTERMANN, Independent journalist;
  • Craig COPETAS, Journalist, Quartz & The Atlantic Group.

Produced and prepared by David Boratov, Haxie Meyers-Belkin, and Diaraye Bah
