Counterbalance Ep. 14 | Peter Rough, Europe is Caught Between Globalization & Geopolitics

What is the state of the European project in the midst of Brexit and the election of Joe Biden? How is the continent adjusting to a world increasingly dominated by geopolitical competition rather than globalization? Marshall finds Peter’s answers to these questions and more.

About Counterbalance:

Counterbalance is a foreign policy podcast that embodies Hudson’s tradition of challenging conventional wisdom. The Trump era attacked the elite consensus regarding several key issues, including the rise of China, American policy toward the Middle East, and the compartmentalization of domestic and foreign policy. Many observers in the media and in establishment foreign policy circles are presenting the advent of a Biden presidency as a total repudiation of President Trump’s policies and a return to “normalcy.” But, regardless of how one feels about the Trump era or any of his specific policies, there is no turning back the clock. The elite foreign policy consensus will never be the same. Counterbalance will reckon with what’s next.
