Soon, the UK and Australia will work together to build nuclear subs, but can the UK’s focus on the Indo-Pacific last? Since the last Integrated Review was done two years ago, has the UK finally made clear what its foreign policy goals are when it comes to Russia, China, and defense? And is there enough money to do everything? Also on the show, the group talks about Georgia after recent protests against the government in Tbilisi. After the Rose Revolution in 2003, it seemed like Georgia was going to get closer to NATO and the European Union (EU).
But recently, the country’s government has moved toward Russia and Vladimir Putin. How is Georgia’s democracy doing, and where is the country going? Bronwen Maddox from Chatham House will be there with Creon Butler, head of our Global Economy and Finance program, Professor Andrew Dorman, editor of the International Affairs journal, and Alice Billon-Galland, research fellow in our Europe Program.
Natia Seskuria, an associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), and Arthur Snell, a former minister and host of the podcast Doomsday Watch, also join the conversation. The head of Chatham House, Bronwen Maddox, hosts this weekly podcast in which she talks with top policymakers, journalists, and Chatham House experts about the latest international problems.
