Foreign Policy Research Institute A Nation Must Think Before it Acts Geopolitics with Granieri

Geopolitics with Granieri features a conversation – some might say an interrogation – with guest scholars on subjects in the news. Moderated by FPRI’s Ron Granieri, each session will draw upon FPRI’s vast network of scholars and outside experts to elicit a broader understanding of the geographical, political, and historical context of current events. This uniquely interactive program, produced in front of a live audience, offers real substance and emphasizes active audience participation from both the studio and the live YouTube audience.
