Discussing The Unites States' New Security and Defence Policies

February 4, 2018

On today's Global Exchange Podcast, we take a look at the United States' new defence and security policies with CGAI Fellow, and former Senior Advisor for International Humanitarian Policy in the Obama administration, Lindsay Rodman. Join Lindsay in conversation with our Host, Dave Perry, as they decipher the meaning of the two new documents, and how they reflect the worldview of President Donald Trump. The discussion also looks at the presence of a third offset strategy, the lack of attention to cyber warfare, and the calls for more interoperability amongst America's allies.
