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.

American vs. Chinese Propaganda, with Robert Daly

As China's middle class grows, Hollywood is making films with this audience in mind, says the Wilson Center's Robert Daly, previously a producer for the Chinese version of "Sesame Street." How is this different from filmmaking in the World War II and Cold War eras? And why did the Chinese government have a problem with Cookie Monster and Grover?

Global Ethics Weekly: A "Peace Regime" on the Korean Peninsula?

In this new podcast series, we'll be connecting current events to Carnegie Council resources through conversations with our Senior Fellows. This week, Devin Stewart discusses how his essay defending the Singapore Summit holds up a month later. Plus, he and host Alex Woodson speak about Mike Pompeo's strange and unproductive trip to Pyongyang, what a "peace regime" could look like, and the prospects for a unified Korean Peninsula.

Asia's "Opinion Wars" with Historian Alexis Dudden

As part of our new Information Warfare podcast series, University of Connecticut historian Alexis Dudden looks at the propaganda efforts coming out of Northeast Asia, with a focus on China's Confucius Institutes at American universities. Is China trying to spread its communist ideology through these centers or just teach its language to college students? Are the U.S. and Japan "guilty" of similar efforts?
