America’s Alliance Management Challenge in the Russia-Ukraine Crisis

December 9, 2021

Episode Notes:

President Joe Biden spoke with Vladimir Putin this week to discuss the crisis over Russia’s military build-up near the Ukrainian border. Biden promised to continue to consult with NATO allies on key issues, although allies and partners in Eastern Europe appear concerned that the administration might overlook their security interests in an effort to stabilize ties with Russia. To discuss the challenges of alliance management facing the United States during a crisis in Europe, we’re joined by Rachel Rizzo. Rachel is a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council’s Europe Center.
