Geopolitics on the Move || Podcast series

The United Nations emerged from the ashes of the worst war in human history to preserve global peace. Seventy-five years later, though the UN remains a leading global institution, there is increasing talk of it being in crisis and the necessity of reform. Can the UN return to relevancy amid the geopolitical realities of the 21st century?

Here’s Yale University Professor Thomas Graham and Russia’s First Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN Dmitry Polyansky with their insights.

Geopolitics on the Move is a podcast series hosted by Sean Guillory (SRB Podcast) and Fyodor Lukyanov (Russia in Global Affairs) that discusses the crucial geopolitical issues that currently define world politics with some of the best Russian, European, and American thinkers.

Geopolitics on the Move is produced by Russia in Global Affairs, the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, and the Center for Russian, Eastern European, & Eurasian Studies at the University of Pittsburgh. The Carnegie Corporation of New York provided funding.
