Taking Obama Seriously

6 February 2008

Anthony Barnett (London, OK): I've been blogging infrequently because after going to New York last week I changed my mind about Obama and wanted to work out what makes him tick and what are the tocks behind the tick. It's just been published in our openDemocracy mothership,  it's long but my excuse is that it is packed with quotes from the man himself to help you make up your own mind.

Is the pandemic changing attitudes towards migration?

Will Canada give its undocumented essential workers their rights? And where are the immigrants in the country’s policy debates?
