The World Today With Tariq Ali - EU Eyesores: Romania

  • Whatsapp

This week, The World Today makes a detour to Romania, a country on the Eastern-most limits of the EU’s border, and one that is rarely discussed outside of Eastern Europe.

Tariq’s guest this week is Romanian political scientist Vladimir Bortun, a reader at Portsmouth University, who tells us about a huge government corruption scandal, the largest street protests since the end of Communism, and whether or not joining the EU has benefitted the country.
