From Austria to New Zealand, coalition governments often pave the road to foreign policy. In Western Europe, nearly 90 percent of postwar governments include two or more political parties. Israel, the Middle East's only consolidated democracy according to many, has never experienced single-party rule in its history. Even the United Kingdom, known for its long streak of single-party rule, now navigates multiparty cabinets. Coalitions are everywhere, but we still have little understanding of how they act in foreign affairs. History shows that coalitions can sometime engage in powerful international commitments such as participating in military operations, but at other times, they postpone their decisions, water down their policy positions, or promise to do less than they otherwise would. What explains these differences in behavior? Sibel Oktay's book Governing Abroad: Coalition Politics and Foreign Policy in Europe (U Michigan Press, 2022) unpacks the little-known world of coalition governments to find out. Oktay argues that the specific constellation of parties in government explains why some coalitions can make more assertive foreign policy decisions than others. Building on the rich literature in political science on coalitions, legislatures, and voting behavior, the book weaves together sophisticated statistical analyses of foreign policy events across thirty European countries alongside in-depth case studies from Denmark, the Netherlands, and Finland. It brings political parties back into the study of foreign policy, demonstrating that the size of the coalition, the ideological proximity of the governing parties, and their relationship with the parliamentary opposition together influence the government's ability to act in the international arena. This book challenges our existing perceptions about the constraints and weaknesses of coalition governments. It sheds new light on the conditions that allow them to act decisively abroad. Sibel Oktay is associate professor of political science at the University of Illinois at Springfield and a nonresident senior fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. Her research focuses on the interaction between domestic politics and foreign policy, and how leaders influence those relationships. She has published in the European Journal of Political Research, British Journal of Politics and International Affairs, and European Security, among others. She has also written for outlets including War On The Rocks, The Hill, and Responsible Statecraft. She is a 2022-2023 recipient of the Jefferson Science Fellowship from the U.S. Department of State.

Because of the peculiar perception of time that we have collectively experienced throughout the pandemic, it may feel odd that the US only began rolling out COVID vaccines in the beginning of last year. So much has occurred in the intervening months that the early days of the pandemic seem much further removed than they are.Increasingly, the United States appears to have moved on. Roughly 80% of Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine and virtually no lockdown restrictions remain in place anywhere in the country. At ACT-IAC, most of our conversations are focusing on the future and the changes that COVID has brought to Federal service delivery and the workforce.While these are important conversations, it is equally important to recognize the profound loss that the world has experienced in these past two years. COVID-19 has claimed the lives of more than 1 million Americans and more than 6 million people globally. Millions more have suffered from a startling decline in physical and financial security and quality of life.Unfortunately, this loss has not been borne equally within this nation or across the globe. COVID has instead magnified the inequalities already present in our social and economic systems, placing a greater burden on some communities over others.This week, The Buzz is joined by LaRon Nelson, Associate Dean for Global Affairs and Planetary Health at the Yale School of Nursing to discuss the causes and consequences of these inequities. He urges us not to forget the hard-learned lessons of this pandemic and to endeavor to prevent them from re-occurring.Subscribe on your favorite podcast platform to never miss an episode!

Tony welcomes Mike Rogers, a former member of Congress representing Michigan's Eighth Congressional District, an officer in the U.S. Army, and FBI special agent. From his time in the U.S. House of Representatives, where he chaired the powerful House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI) and was a member of the Energy and Commerce panel, Mike built a legacy as a tireless and effective leader on counterterrorism and national security policy, as well as being active on healthcare, telecommunications, and automotive issues. As chairman of HPSCI, he authorized and oversaw a budget of $70 billion that provided funding to the nation's 17 intelligence agencies. Rogers was a prominent leader on cybersecurity in the United States Congress during his service, shepherding multiple cybersecurity bills through the House of Representatives and is a highly sought-after national expert on cyber policy. Mike has worked with two presidents, Congressional leadership, and countless foreign leaders, diplomats and intelligence professionals to ensure the brave men and women who fight for our nation are equipped with the resources necessary to get the job done. Washington Post columnist David Ignatius remarked, Mike was “a rare example of bipartisanship.” The founder of the Mike Rogers Center for Intelligence & Global Affairs, he is working jointly with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress (CSPC) and the Bipartisan Policy Center to realign the interests of government and the technology industry through the Global Digital Challenge Initiative. The Initiative brings together leaders in the policy, business, and technology communities to discuss critical issues facing the United States and the global digital economy. It offers participants a unique opportunity to engage with peers and counterparts, hear from leaders in industry and government, and network during forums designed to begin working towards an alignment of interests. Mike sits on the Board of Directors for IronNet Cybersecurity, which features an integrated, end-to-end approach to cybersecurity that offers breakthrough, patent-pending technology, providing real-time threat assessment and updates, complex behavioral modeling, big data analytics and proactive responses. Additionally, Mike sits on the Board of Advisors for Next Century Corporation, a technology company that focuses on innovations in the security and intelligence space. He also serves on the Cybersecurity Industry Advisory Council for Trident Capital. Additionally, Rogers is a Distinguished Fellow at the prestigious Hudson Institute and serves on the Board of Trustees at CSPC. Mike also is a board member of Leadership to Ensure the American Dream (LEAD) Rogers is the host and executive producer of Declassified: Untold Stories of American Spies that airs on CNN. Rogers is also a CNN national security commentator and a regular in the major print outlets such as The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press. He is a staple on radio and appeared on more Sunday shows than any other elected official in 2013 and 2014. Rogers was a 1985 graduate of Adrian College and is married to Kristi Rogers.
