CNN shines spotlight on Davos
DAVOS, Switzerland (CNN) -- CNN has begun a week of coverage dedicated to the World Economic Forum's annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, including documentaries, live debate, interviews and regular news updates.
Presenters Richard Quest, Becky Anderson and Charles Hodson are reporting live on location as the week's events develop.
Coverage includes a special two-hour network event titled "Europe's identity crisis" which culminates in a CNN Connects global forum before a live audience.
A prestigious panel of newsmakers will brainstorm and debate how European nations can effectively embrace different faiths and cultures.
CNN anchor Becky Anderson hosts the one-hour special, which features guests including Ali Babacan, Minister of State for the Economy of Turkey, and GŁnter Verheugen, European Commission Vice President and Commissioner for Enterprise and Industry.
European economies need migrant labor, but has immigration touched off a clash of cultures? Why are immigrants angry, and are European's at odds with the very people the continent needs to sustain its viability and future prosperity? CNN Connects airs at 2200 GMT on Thursday, January 26.
Supporting CNN Connects is a one-hour documentary hosted by CNN Correspondent Karl Penhaul.
In Europe's Identity Crisis, Penhaul travels across the continent visiting France, Germany, Ireland, the Netherlands and Spain, examining life through an immigrant's eyes, and investigating how nations have reacted to the increasing tide of migrant workers. The film can be seen at 2100 GMT on Thursday, January 26.
CNN presenters Richard Quest, Becky Anderson and Charles Hodson will report live from Davos with news updates, reaction and interviews throughout the week.
And a special half-hour round-up, This Week at Davos, airs at 1430 GMT and 1830 GMT on Saturday, January 28.
Rena Golden, Senior Vice President of CNN International, said: "Some of the most powerful political and business leaders in the world will be at Davos. That's our audience, so of course CNN will be there.
"We'll debate the important issues and find out what the world's leaders intend to do about them. Their agenda intersects with the issues we examine daily."
CNN.com will be providing extensive coverage of the World Economic Forum's annual meeting while broadband video news service, CNN Pipeline, will allow subscribers access to additional news feeds from Davos.
