Dr Sudhir Hazareesingh interviewed on the conflict between Charlie Hebdo and Mediapart

Sudhir has been interviewed by Le Monde (15 November) about the latest clash in France over the issue of laicité.

Against the backdrop of the fallout over the Tariq Ramadan affair, two leading papers (Charlie-Hebdo and Mediapart) have been engaging in a violent polemic.  Sudhir discusses what the clash reveals about the current state of the French Left and in particular what it tells us about the limits of the French approach to questions of multiculturalism.
