World Review: Biden's First Year, European Instability, and Ukraine
About This Episode
One year into President Biden’s term, Ryan Heath, Elise Labott, and Gideon Rachman join World Review with Ivo Daalder to look at the highs and lows of the administration’s foreign policy and how diplomats see where we are now. Then, how to prevent looming political instability in Europe and the latest on Russia and Ukraine.
To deter Russia, America must help revive the region’s security architecture, Council President Ivo Daalder and James M. Goldgeier argue.
The Council examines public opinion on key foreign policy topics that will be covered in the third and final 2012 Presidential debate.
“An end to NATO enlargement or withdrawing forces from the east will not stop Putin. Only full support of Ukraine can do that,” writes Ivo Daalder in the Financial Times.
Is the threat of a NATO expansion the core issue driving Putin’s aggression towards Ukraine, or are his concerns about legacy to blame?
