FP Live: The Future of Afghanistan

August 11, 2022 | 12:00 PM ET

Last summer, the United States decided to end its longest war. But just days after the U.S. military withdrew from Afghanistan, Kabul fell—and the Taliban took control of the country. Aug. 15 will mark one year since the group has been in power.  How are Afghans coping with their new rulers? Are there internal policy spats within the Taliban? Has the international community done enough to assist Afghans? What does the future hold for the country?  For answers, join FP editor in chief Ravi Agrawal on Aug. 11 at 12 p.m. EDT for an in-depth discussion with Lynne O’Donnell, a columnist for FP detained by the Taliban last month, and Michael Kugelman, the writer of FP’s weekly South Asia Brief.

August 15, 2022 | 2:30 PM ET

In her role as administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development, Samantha Power is often thrust into the forefront of some of the world’s biggest crises. From working to ensure that Russia honors a U.N.-brokered deal to ship grain from Ukraine to helping to figure out how to get aid to cash-strapped Sri Lanka, Power plays an important role in everyday U.S. foreign policy.  How can the world solve the ongoing food crisis? How can Ukraine win the war? How can democracy be strengthened amid an autocratic surge?  Join FP editor in chief Ravi Agrawal for a wide-ranging interview with Power on Aug. 15 at 2:30 p.m. EDT. As always, FP subscribers will have an opportunity to ask questions live.

FP Live: Adam Tooze on How to Manage Record Inflation

Energy prices are surging. Food supplies are depleted. Stocks have entered bear market territory. And inflation is running at historic highs. The underlying factors for the world’s current economic troubles include Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and a hangover from pandemic-related shutdowns, but they also trace their roots further back into monetary policy since the 2008 financial crisis. The question is how to manage an overheated economy: Are there lessons from 1970s-era inflation? Or is today’s situation unprecedented? How can economists prevent a tough recession? Watch this in-depth interview with FP columnist and Columbia University professor Adam Tooze, whose latest book is Crashed: How a Decade of Financial Crises Changed the World. Tooze answers subscriber questions throughout the interview.

FP Live: Assessing Biden’s Foreign Policy

Perhaps because American politics is so polarized, the critiques of the Biden administration that get the most attention come from the right. But it’s also important to engage with perspectives to the left of the White House, especially as the United States gears up for its midterm elections this fall. Matthew Duss has served as a foreign-policy advisor to Sen. Bernie Sanders since 2017. Sanders has twice run for president, including in the 2020 election cycle when Joe Biden edged him out to become the nominee of the Democratic Party. Although Duss criticizes the Biden administration’s foreign policy on several fronts—its global vaccination efforts and its approach to human rights, for example—he is, in fact, broadly supportive of how Washington has handled Russia’s war in Ukraine so far. Foreign Policy's editor in chief, Ravi Agrawal,  sat down with Duss for a wide-ranging interview on Monday, June 20, for FP Live, the magazine’s platform for live journalism.

FP Live: A Conversation with Belarus Opposition Leader Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February sent shock waves around the world. As Ukrainians fight for their sovereignty, the fate of neighboring Belarus is also closely entwined with the outcome of the war. The country’s longtime president, Aleksandr Lukashenko, sided with Russia when he allowed Belarus to be used as a launch pad for the invasion. But where do the Belarusian people stand? What role did Belarus play in the assault on Kyiv, Ukraine’s capital, and can Western sanctions change Lukashenko’s calculus?   The country’s opposition leader, Sviatlana Tsikhanouskaya, joins FP Live on June 1 at 1 p.m. EDT to answer these questions and more in a wide-ranging interview with Amy Mackinnon, Foreign Policy’s national security and intelligence reporter.

FP Live: India's Response to Putin's War

Why has India been reluctant to join the West in censuring Russia's invasion of Ukraine? As the White House tries to align democracies against autocracies, why is the world’s biggest democracy sitting on the fence? Part of New Delhi’s rationale is that it has a historic reliance on Moscow for military equipment. But India also stands to gain from the current moment as it snaps up Russian oil at heavy discounts. How are India's choices impacting the world order? What will they mean for America’s broader strategy in the Asia-Pacific? For answers, join FP editor in chief Ravi Agrawal for a live discussion with Shivshankar Menon, India's former foreign secretary and national security advisor, and Suhasini Haidar, the diplomatic affairs editor of The Hindu.

FP Live: The New Economics Playbook

After the financial crisis and COVID-19, decades of economic orthodoxy are being thrown out as the world rearranges itself. For our summer issue, and to help us think about what comes next, FP asked leading economists and thinkers to describe the new, post-pandemic era. We also asked them to give it a name. FP Senior Advisor Antoine Van Agtmael, who coined the term "emerging markets," has done it again with his pithy summation of the West's conviction that it can spend itself out of trouble: Fuzzynomics. As governments try out novel ways to contain the pressures of inflation, Professor Stephanie Kelton dubs this The Experimental Economy. And FP Senior Correspondent Mike Hirsh offers up Bidenomics, a new form of economic nationalism. Don't miss these guests in conversation with FP’s editor in chief Ravi Agrawal on how to define these unprecedented times.
