About This Episode

President Lula da Silva's narrow victory against Jair Bolsonaro has heavy implications for Brazil's democratic institutions and the global fight against climate change. In Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu's conservative coalition is projected to win with the help of the far right. Council President Ivo Daalder explores these comebacks and the news of a truce in Ethiopia, joined by Bobby Ghosh, Susan Glasser, and James Harding on World Review.
