Little Atoms with Philippe Legrain

On this week's show, Neil Denny and Padraig Reidy are joined by Philippe Legrain.

Philippe Legrain is a journalist and writer, based in London but interested in the whole world. He is fascinated by how economics, politics and culture combine to form the big picture and how the world is coming together through globalisation while becoming ever more diverse through cultural mixing and individual choice. Philippe writes primarily about globalisation, migration and European issues, but through this his blog and his contributions to the Guardian's Comment is free he is now ranging more widely. Philippe is also a contributing editor to Prospect and as of September 2007, is a Visiting Fellow at the European Institute of the London School of Economics. He followed up his first book, Open World: The Truth about Globalisation, with a new one, Immigrants: Your Country Needs Them, making the case for freer international migration (immigration).

Join us at the usual time, this friday 18th Jan at 19.00 GMT on Resonance 104.4FM in London or worldwide via the Resonance FM website.
