Russell Berman

Russell Berman, the Walter A. Haas Professor in the Humanities at Stanford University, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and a member of the Working Group on Islamism and the International Order, discusses United States and European relations, particularly our relationships with traditional allies in Europe.  Berman believes we need to rebuild the western alliance as we face Russia and its annexation of Crimea and invasion of Eastern Ukraine, both of which can be seen as a declaration of war against the west. Berman also discusses the US-Iran nuclear negations and the role that France is playing in those negotiations.
