Presented by Kirsty Wark

A Happy New Year to all Newsnight viewers, wherever you are in the world, and I hope we will illuminate 2011 for you!

Tonight, we will be looking at the issues expected to dominate global politics in 2011. Which countries will be flexing their political and economic muscles this year? Will new wars break out? Will China rule the waves? What will the US troop draw down in Afghanistan mean for the country? Our Diplomatic editor Mark Urban will give us his analysis and then we have a top notch panel for our discussion.

But before all of that we begin with a look at the political row behind the rise in VAT.

David Grossman will report on the clash between Labour and the coalition over whether the increase from 17.5% to 20% is a "progressive" or "regressive" tax. And in the studio we will be talking to a government minister and their opposition shadow.

Plus, we have a follow-up investigation on homeopathy.

Join me at 10.30pm on BBC Two.
