This is a sample of the Munk Members-Only Podcast. The program provides listeners with a focused, half-hour masterclass on the big issues, events and trends driving news and current events. The show features Janice Gross Stein, the founding director of the Munk School of Global Affairs and bestselling author, in conversation with Rudyard Griffiths, Chair and moderator of the Munk Debates.
This week’s Munk Members podcast focuses on three topics in the news. First, Canada’s so-called “trucker” protests go global with copycat movements cropping up in Europe and America. Are we seeing a new form of civil disobedience in the making? How will governments respond? Second, are elites, and Canada’s in particular, becoming dangerously removed from the day-to-day lives of “average” Canadians? What could this mean for the future of not just the pandemic but the fight against climate change too? And finally, what are Janice’s latest thoughts on the risk of a Russian invasion of Ukraine? How important are the next two weeks?
