Musab Iqbal joins a TRT World Forum roundtable on racism, culture wars, and the polarisation of global politics

30 November 2021

In an interconnected and interdependent world, challenges to social cohesion, whether based on race, religion, culture or ethnicity, can no longer be considered purely as an internal matter and must be accounted for at the international level.
