Sunday Playlist: World Views

By Susanna Capelouto, CNN

(CNN) –  This week much of the world focused on the presidential election in the United States, so in this post we thought we'll highlight some other stories from around the world.

ENGLAND

This week a former oil executive became the new Archbishop of Canterbury.  Justin Welby  will be leading the Anglican Church.  We found this profile by BBC Radio 4 which was originally done in late September when Welby was one of the candidates.  They interviewed some of his former employees and it sheds some light on the kind of leader he may become. 

MYANMAR

President Obama will travel to Myanmar this coming week as part of an Asia tour.  His visit is meant to validate the countries move towards democracy.  This story from Deutsche Welle Radio titled "Human rights on the improve in Myanmar"  talks to people in Myanmar who value their new freedoms, but are still apprehensive after years of repression. 

SYRIA

A lot of countries want to help end the Syrian civil war, but their influence is mostly felt in humanitarian help for refugees.  This week in Geneva there was a humanitarian forum hosted by the UN that is already planning for a growing refugee crisis in 2013.  This report is titled "Humanitarian forum rings alarm bells for Syria."  It's from World Radio Switzerland.

CAMEROON

In our search for stories we stumbled upon this story from Deutsche Welle about child trafficking in Cameroon.   It's a chilling look at the worldwide problem.
