Thesigers Quarterly Bulletin Featured on Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty

LONDON, 12 September 2012: Radio and online news broadcaster Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) recently interviewed Faisal Devji, a long-time contributor to Current Intelligence, Thesigers' quarterly bulletin of current affairs. Devji, who is Reader in Indian History and Director of the Asian Studies Centre at St. Antony's College, Oxford University, is the author of several critically acclaimed books. His latest essay for Current Intelligence appeared in the Summer 2012 issue under the title "Tajikistan: Power and the Aga Khan", (originally titled "Politics Dies in the Pamirs"), and  critiqued the role of the Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN) in the Central Asian state. RFE/RL correspondent Zach Peterson spoke to Devji via Skype, and their discussion elaborates on points raised in the essay. The interview was video-recorded, and posted to the RFE/RL website and to YouTube.
