In the week the UK government published its Integrated Review of Security, Defence, Development and Foreign Policy, Ben explores the recent history of UK foreign policy with Philip Stephens, the Chief Political Commentator for the Financial Times. Stephens' latest book, Britain Alone, traces the UK's pursuit of a global role after the fall of the British Empire.  

Imperial legacies are also the subject of this week's second interview. Lara Hollmann is joined by two of her Global Health Programme colleagues, Dr Ngozi Erondu and Dr Mishal Khan, to discuss efforts to decolonise the institutions and practices of global health.
