In this week's podcast: the United States debates the implications of the Christmas Day terrorism incident; an alleged Somali pirate goes on trial in New York; unrest grows in Iran; and Ukraine holds presidential elections.
The World Next Week is a coproduction of CFR.org and Foreign Affairs.
India now matters to U.S. interests in virtually every dimension. This Independent Task Force report assesses the current situation in India and the U.S.-India relationship, and suggests a new model for partnership with a rising India.
Rates of heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and other noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) in low- and middle-income countries are increasing faster than in wealthier countries. The report outlines a plan for collective action on this growing epidemic.
This report asserts that elevating and prioritizing the U.S.-Canada-Mexico relationship offers the best opportunity for strengthening the United States and its place in the world.
