About This Episode

As leaders gather in Davos for the first time since Covid-19, the state of global affairs remains grim, from the ongoing war in Ukraine to climate change and a possible global recession. We’ll discuss the relationship between geopolitics and geoeconomics and offer potential solutions. Then, Western powers will meet later this week to decide whether to send tanks to Ukraine. Plus, the protests against the Iranian regime continue. Will the Islamic Republic break? Council President Ivo Daalder examines these issues with Steve Erlanger, Kim Ghattas, and James Harding on World Review.
