War & Peace: Europe’s Hidden Strengths

This week on War & Peace, Olga Oliker and Hugh Pope talk to Jeremy Shapiro, Research Director at the European Council of Foreign Relations, about European sovereignty and Europe's relationship with the U.S. and Russia.

Season 1 Episode 4: Europe’s Hidden Strengths

The turmoil since the United Kingdom’s 2016 referendum on leaving the European Union has exposed deep fissures not just within British society, but also problems within Europe as a whole. Indeed, a tide of nationalist parties has swept through the continent on an anti-EU platform, triggering heated debate about the union’s true value. 

Jeremy Shapiro, Research Director at the European Council on Foreign Relations, is Olga and Hugh’s guest to discuss these shifting dynamics in the War & Peace studio. Together they reflect on the meaning of European sovereignty, the EU’s relationship with the U.S. under an antagonistic president and the need for a common policy toward their Russian neighbour.
