Ending servitude? Philani Mthembu, executive director of the Institute for Global Dialogue


The political map of the world, as it exists today, is in large part the result of the anti-colonial struggle of the 20th century, which created many new states without necessarily unchaining them from economic and political dependence. National destiny, sovereign decision-making, fair world order and freedom not to be in servitude to somebody else’s interests — all of these issues seem to be as relevant today as they were 50 or 60 years ago. What will it take to have them mapped out once and for all? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Philani Mthembu, the executive director of the Institute for Global Dialogue in South Africa.

The interview was held on the sidelines of the 19th annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club.
