Emily Tamkin presents Battle for the Soul of America, a three-part series from the World Review podcast that examines the first year of Joe Biden’s presidency. How have some of his core campaign pledges – on foreign policy, immigration and voting rights – held up?
Our first episode focuses on foreign policy. With his decades of experience in international affairs, Biden claimed that “America is back” after four years of a Trump administration that conducted its foreign policy through an “America first” lens. Has Biden restored the US to the world stage, and at what cost?
Emily speaks with two analysts covering international affairs: Benjamin Haddad, senior director for the Europe Centre at the Atlantic Council, and Tanvi Madan, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. Then she interviews the congressman Joaquin Castro, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, to assess how progressive Biden's first year in foreign policy has really been.
Rory Medcalf on what the new Aukus alliance means for global relations.
Emily on whether the United States can work with India to counter China.
Emily asks if the US and EU have healed relations.
