Show Notes

This week on UNDERREPORTED, Nicholas Lemann welcomes Atossa Araxia Abrahamian to the studio to talk about her book The Cosmopolites: The Coming of the Global Citizen, published by Columbia Global Reports in 2015. Nick and Atossa discuss the global business of buying and selling citizenships and what it means to be a "cosmopolite."  Is globalization good? Should we identify as citizens of more than one place? And what are our responsibilities to people on the other side of the world, when people in our own countries aren't doing so well?
