Ties That Bind, Episode 5 - Alignment and Realignment

In this fifth episode, Andrew Shearer sits down with Gabriel Scheinmann, Executive Director of the Alexander Hamilton Society to discuss the concept of alignment and what United States’ policymakers can learn today from previous efforts by great power competition to peel off American Allies. Topics include the role of US leadership in maintaining strong alliances; what history can teach us about great power competition, alignment and alliances; and how the United States should respond to efforts by Russia, China and Iran to influence the alignment of regional countries and undermine US alliances.
