Festival of Thought 2016

Moderator: Paul Barclay, ABC Radio National

A must-listen discussion about Islamic State involving seven key questions — who are its members, how did they become so powerful, why do people join

Australian columnist and foreign policy analyst; editor of American Review and presenter of the Between the Lines program aired on Radio National.
