This November, we have the pleasure to welcome the world renowned French novelist, Jean Christophe Rufin. Historian, writer and former French Ambassador to Senegal, Rufin is also the co-founder of NGO Action Against Hunger and one of the pioneers of Doctors Without Borders. Rufin’s fiction includes the Prix Goncourt-award winning The Abyssinian (1997) and Brazil Red (2001).

Is the world Rufin imagined and helped create – ‘without borders’ – now being crushed by the forces of Realpolitik, ‘compassion fatigue’ and overwhelming hostility to the ‘other’?

He will be sharing his views with Ahmad Fuad Rahmat, co-host of the BFM radio show “Night School”.
