This is a sample of the Munk Members-Only Podcast. The program provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates. This week’s Munk Members’ only podcast explores three issues in the news. First, while no progress was made when Russia’s foreign minister and the U.S. Secretary of State met this week, are the terms of a “deal” to avoid military conflict in Ukraine emerging? What could de-escalation look like? And who needs to do want to make this happen? Second, Afghanistan’s humanitarian crisis is going from bad to worse with over 20 million people now at risk of acute food insecurity. Why is this happening? Will the West standby with tens of thousands of lives, including children’s, at stake? And, finally, Israel and Iran are upping cyber attacks on each others’ civilian populations. What precedents are being set with these attacks? And what ultimately is at risk as state actors increasingly use their cyber arsenals to wage psychological warfare on each other civil institutions and infrastructure?
