Around the World Over Drinks: The Middle East, Russia, and Big Issues for the Next President

September 30, 2016

For special access to experts and other members of the national security community, check out the new War on the Rocks membership.

In an “around the world” edition of our podcast series, Ryan Evans convened a top-notch group to discuss everything from Cuba to the Middle East to Russia to deterrence to China to personnel issues along with a whole range of big issues for the first 100 days of the next administration. Tune in to listen to Elbridge Colby (CNAS), Radha Iyengar (RAND), Will McCants (Brookings), and Bill Rosenau (CNA) talk about some of the world’s most pressing issues with the aid of a few drinks.

We also briefly remember the respected scholar and international security analyst, Angel Rabasa, who recently passed away.
