Lea Ypi with Allan Little: What Does Freedom Mean in Europe? image

Albania was one of the world’s most isolated countries under the rule of Enver Hoxha during its communist period. Lea Ypi grew up under Hoxha, then witnessed communism’s collapse and the country’s transformation to a flawed market economy.
Today, Ypi joins journalist Allan Little to discuss her memoir Free and to explore the wider implications for Europe at a time when democracy across the continent is under pressure.
