On this week's episode of World Review from the New Statesman, Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin, Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC and Ido Vock in Paris look ahead at the stories that might dominate 2021 – from protests in Belarus to friction in Asia via elections in Latin America – and the global impact they could have. They also take stock of the events of the last week, including the scenes as Donald Trump's supporters stormed the Capitol.
