CSIS | Center for Strategic and International Stud
The Readout dissects the big (and soon-to-be big) stories of the week in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. The show posts every Friday and features guests from the policy community and the media, as well as CSIS's in-house experts. Hosted by Colm Quinn.
The Khashoggi Case: Turkey's Opportunity
While Saudi Arabia has foundered in its response to the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkey's President Recip Tayyip Erdogan has attempted to use the crisis to burnish Turkey's image in the region and to help repair Turkey's relationship with the United States. CSIS Turkey Project Director Bulent Aliriza joins The Readout this week to discuss the international implications of this ongoing episode. Hosted by Colm Quinn.
Climate Change and the Case of Jamal Khashoggi
This week we look at the two big stories from the week - the case of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi dissident "disappeared" in Istanbul and the US-Saudi relations fallout and the IPCC's climate change report that warns of quick action needed by the global community before 2030 to avert climate disaster. With CSIS's Jon Alterman and Sarah Ladislaw. Hosted by Colm Quinn.
A Week of Spies
This week saw multiple countries point the finger at Russia for a string of cyberattacks, prompting the often-asked question of what a Western response would look like. China also came under scrutiny after a Bloomberg Businessweek story claimed that China had successfully inserted chips in to hardware used by Apple and Amazon, effectively allowing security backdoors into the companies. To explain it all is Jim Lewis, the CSIS resident cyber expert. Hosted by Colm Quinn.
