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 : 2018-05-28

Weinstein in court; Ireland abortion vote; Italy's populist takeover

Our panel of journalists looks at Harvey Weinstein pleading not guilty to rape and sex crimes against two women; Irish voters deciding whether to repeal the Eighth Amendment of the country’s constitution which bans abortion under nearly all circumstances; Italy's populist takeover, with a coalition led by a Florence law academic plucked from obscurity; and Donald Trump changing his mind twice in a week on the Singapore summit with Kim Jong-un.

Produced by Andrew HILLIAR, Alessandro XENOS, Melissa KALAYDJIAN.
