Watch part two
Has Barack Obama's mantra for change translated to foreign policy success one year after he became the US president? Obama promised to break away from the policies of his predecessor, George Bush, and rebuild ties with disgruntled allies and reach out to the Muslim world.
Over the course of the year, his administration attempted to re-start the stalled Israeli-Palestinian peace talks and engage with Iran and North Korea over their nuclear programmes.
Obama also had to maintain a delicate alliance with Pakistan, deal with China's enormous economic clout and reconnect with former Cold War foe Russia.
Anand Naidoo, who is sitting in for Riz Khan, will be joined by academic and author Philip Bobbit, who served under three US presidents, Stephen Walt, a professor of international affairs at Harvard University, and Christopher Dickey, the Middle East Regional Editor for Newsweek magazine. This episode of the Riz Khan show aired from Wednesday, January 20, 2010.
