Event Description

In the wake of several crises now afflicting the continent, the dream of a United States of Europe is unraveling. Voters are abandoning traditional ways of governing in favor of authoritarian, populist, and nationalist alternatives. Europe is struggling to cope with an influx of nearly 2 million refugees, Britain has voted to leave the European Union after 43 years, and the single Euro currency threatens to collapse.

What consequences do these events have for Europe, the United States, and the rest of the world? Does the changing nature of our relationships with longtime allies threaten global security?

William Drozdiak is a former editor and chief European correspondent of The Washington Post.  He has also served as founding executive director of the Transatlantic Center in Brussels and, for 10 years, was president of the American Council on Germany. Currently Drozdiak is a non-resident senior fellow in the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution.

Fight for Liberty, with Max Boot, Philip Bobbitt, Garry Kasparov, & Bret Stephens

We live in a time when liberal democracy is on the defensive, not only in the U.S. but around the world. Yet these speakers, whose roots reflect the political spectrum, are optimistic that having a fresh discussion on moral values and basic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law can help bring democracy back to health. Don't miss this valuable discussion.

Global Ethics Weekly: Science Fiction, Micro-democracy, & Information, with Malka Older

Malka Older has spent time as an aid worker in Darfur, Indonesia, and Japan, as was discussed in last week's podcast, but she also has another role: science fiction novelist. Her latest book, "State Tectonics," is the third in a series that explores the concepts of "micro-democracy" and a "global information management bureacracy" in the near future. How have separatists from East Timor to Catalonia influenced Older's novels?
