Ties That Bind, Episode 1: NATO in the Trump Era

In this first episode of “Ties that Bind,” Andrew Shearer sits down with Heather Conley, CSIS senior vice president for Europe, Eurasia, and the Arctic, and director, Europe Program, to talk about all things NATO. The discussion covers the argument over the value of NATO, its costs, and conflation of the two; NATO’s role in a historical context and in 2017; the altered landscape of NATO’s adversaries, in particular the threat from Moscow, then and now; and an assessment of whether the framework of the organization is adequate to meet the needs of the 21st century.
