  • Russia's Information Warfare, with Molly McKew 12/12/18
    Molly McKew, Devin T. Stewart,
    "You saw the Russians start to pay attention to social media, in particular after Obama's election, because the way that he was elected was new to them. They always watch our elections very closely. So you see them toying around in this whole space of the sphere of information, the use of information as a tool of political warfare, developing new tools." Molly McKew delves into Russian disinformation campaigns in the U.S. and elsewhere.
  • Breaking News: The Remaking of Journalism and Why It Matters Now, with Alan Rusbridger 12/10/18
    Alan Rusbridger
    "Were we a business, were we a mission, were we a public service, or were we a profit center?" Alan Rusbridger, former editor-in-chief of "The Guardian," grapples with the questions facing all newspapers in this new age where people "communicate horizontally" rather than via the old, vertical "tablet of stone model." He explains how "The Guardian" has not only survived but prospered and has surprisingly positive things to say about new media.

    Artificial Intelligence's potential for doing good and creating benefits is almost boundless, but equally there is a potential for doing great harm.

  • It's Time for the U.S. and Chinese Militaries to Cooperate on HADR 12/06/18
    Austin McKinney
    Relations between the U.S. and China are at their lowest point in decades. Joint Humanitarian and Disaster Response (HADR) would provide an effective mechanism to improve military-to-military engagement between the U.S. and China. The Philippines offers an attractive partner for the U.S. and China to build and operate under a joint-HADR framework for military cooperation,

  • The Jungle Grows Back: America and Our Imperiled World, with Robert Kagan 12/06/18
    Robert Kagan
    "The analogy that is at the heart of this book is about a jungle and a garden," says Robert Kagan. "In order to have a garden and sustain a garden, you've got to be constantly gardening. For me at least, that is a good analogy for this liberal world order, which itself is an unnatural creation which natural forces are always working to undermine." Human nature has not fundamentally changed, and this peaceful period is an aberration.
  • Enemy of the People: Trump's War on the Press, with Marvin Kalb 12/05/18
    Marvin Kalb
    Trump has a love-hate relationship with the press, which he calls "the enemy of the people" when it crosses him, knowing nothing of the origins of the phrase, says Marvin Kalb. Yet the pillars of democracy are the sanctity of the court and the freedom of the press. "I think that President Trump—not wittingly, unwittingly—is moving this nation away from our common understanding of democracy toward something that edges toward authoritarianism."

    The 2016 primaries and the general election revealed a major blind spot in how changes in the U.S. domestic political and economic systems have altered how Americans perceive and conceptualize U.S. national interests abroad. For the past year, USGE has focused on the continuing strengths and weaknesses of the narratives that can be used to support an active U.S. role within the global system. Here are the initial conclusions.
  • Refining Strategic Autonomy: A Call for European Grand Strategy 12/05/18
    Cameron Vaské
    Europe has come to realize that the United States is no longer the stalwart ally of the Cold War era. With the resurgence of China, the return of Russia, the retreat of the United States, and the rise of the rest, Europe needs to define its own grand strategy.
