Garčević Discusses the Future of NATO on Podcast

Ambassador Vesko Garčević, Professor of the Practice of International Relations at Boston University’s Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies, was interviewed on the podcast Cold War Five: America’s Role Abroad! on the future of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

In the episode, “Securing the Future: NATO in Crisis?,” he and BU student Michael Dupre discussed the Alliance’s plans to meet non-conventional security challenges, including economic dependence and democratic backsliding. They also examined the role that the small states of NATO will play in securing the future and addressed democratic backsliding among NATO members and how it affects NATO’s global posture.
