About This Episode

This week, the UN General Assembly meets in New York to discuss a world “in peril”—made all the more so by Vladimir Putin’s decision to mobilize for more war. Elections in Sweden and Italy impact the future of far-right politics in Europe, and with growing civil unrest in Iran, prospects for a revived nuclear deal may be fading. Council President Ivo Daalder is joined by Steve Erlanger, Kim Ghattas, and Peter Spiegel to unpack.
