About the Episode
Council President Ivo Daalder talks with Nirmal Ghosh, Gideon Rachman, and Nahal Toosi about global reactions to COVID-19's omicron variant, Russia's red line for NATO on Ukraine, renewed nuclear negotiations with Iran, and what to expect from the much-heralded Summit for Democracy next week.
This week, the Chicago Council Survey team updates public opinion on COVID-19 from the United States, Japan, Canada, France, Italy, the UK, Brazil, and Nigeria.
This report offers recommendations to strengthen Ukraine’s defenses to deter further Russian aggression and why the US and NATO need to engage more actively and urgently to the crisis.
Defense cooperation requires a shared understanding of threats and goals. And, to be effective requires action, making tradeoffs, and paying costs—not just statements.
Chicago Council Surveys conducted over the last several years (2014-2017) show remarkable stability of American opinion towards the Iran nuclear deal, both before and after the agreement was officially signed.
