Nearly 17 months after U.S. President Joe Biden came into office, the world is still reeling from a pandemic, Russia is fighting a brutal war in neighboring Ukraine, Iran has gotten closer to a nuclear bomb, and an energy crisis is spiraling out of control.

In a special edition of FP LiveMatthew Duss, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders’s foreign-policy advisor, will join Foreign Policy’s editor in chief, Ravi Agrawal, for a wide-ranging interview analyzing U.S. foreign policy.
