Identity Debate: Who Are We?20160418

As part of the Identity Season, Razia Iqbal presents a BBC World Service debate in London, asking how do we as individuals form our identity. What makes us who we are? How do place, race, gender, sexuality and faith affect our identity? And does it still make sense to still talk about single or national identities in a globalised world? Joining Razia will be Yuwen Wu from BBC Chinese, Nick Ericsson from BBC Africa, Ali Hamedani from BBC Persian, plus English singer/songwriter Billy Bragg and the Irish-Nigerian blogger and academic Emma Dabiri.
