On this week’s episode of World Review, Jeremy Cliffe, in Berlin, and Emily Tamkin, in Washington DC, are joined from London by British-Turkish novelist, journalist and activist Elif Shafak to discuss President Erdogan’s controversial changes to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, and the role of nationalist strongmen across the globe. Then, in You Ask Us, they take your question on what British can do to aid the Uighur and Rohingyas.
