Europe's Futures Fellow, Soli Özel and IWM Acting Rector Ivan Vejvoda wrestle with the implications of a truly epochal shift in the geopolitical status quo in this latest episode of the Coffeehouse Conversations podcast.

In this first podcast of our second season, Soli Özel and Ivan Vejvoda discuss the ongoing refocusing of the US's attention on the Indo-Pacific region and the attendant disengagement of the Superpower from the theaters that defined its international relationships during the cold war. Tracing the line of recent history from the so-called 'Obama doctrine' through the Trump presidency and up to the Biden administration's withdrawal from Afghanistan, the furore in Europe surrounding the AUKUS pact and the role that the shifting balance of power has played in Turkey, Syria, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Wider Europe and beyond.

Ivan Vejvoda is Acting Rector of the IWM and is Head of the Europe's Futures program at IWM.
