Cities are slowly coming back to life after COVID. But has the pandemic permanently changed our urban spaces, and how we live within them? Co-author of Survival of the City and Harvard University Professor Edward L. Glaeser talks to Ros Taylor about how commuting has always been defined by class divides, whether fifteen minute cities could work…and why we need a “NATO of healthcare”. “Once we're healthy again, there's little chance cities will atomise.”“There's no Democratic or Republican way to clean the streets. The same should go for fighting pandemics.” “Teleworking makes cities up their game on cost and quality of life.” Presented by Ros Taylor. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees.

Ankara Rüzgârı'nda Türkiye gündemini değerlendiren Zülfikar Doğan, geçen hafta açıklanan enflasyon verisi ve Merkez Bankası Başkanı Şahap Kavcıoğlu'nun görevden alınacağı tartışmalarının bu hafta da yoğun ekonomi gündemiyle süreceğini söyledi. Pazartesi günü TÜİK'in ağustos ayı işsizlik ve istihdam verilerini açıklayacağını kaydeden Doğan, temmuzda yüzde 1,4 artışla yüzde 12'ye yükselen resmi işsizlik rakamıyla işsiz sayısının da bir ayda yarım milyon arttığını ve 3 milyon 902 bin kişiye çıktığını hatırlatarak ağustos rakamlarına ilişkin beklentilerin de işsizlik oranı ve işsiz sayısında artış yönünde olduğunu kaydetti. Doğan, Merkez Bankası'nın eski adıyla beklenti anketi olan Piyasa Katılımcıları Anketi'nin ekim sonuçlarının yanı sıra Hazine ve Maliye Bakanlığı'nın da eylül ayı bütçe gerçekleşme verilerini kamuoyuna duyuracağını belirtti. Ağustos ayı bütçe açığının bir ayda 41 milyar TL olduğunu dile getiren Doğan, vergi ve SGK prim borçlarıyla ilgili yapılandırma başvurularında sürenin dolduğunu ancak 400 milyarlık alacağın sadece 152 milyarı için yapılandırma başvurusu yapıldığını kaydetti. Merkez Bankası Başkanının görevden alınacağı yerine başka bir ismin atanacağına yönelik haberlerin geçen hafta gündemi epeyce meşgul ettiğine ve döviz kurlarını yükselttiğine değinen Doğan, Başkan Kavcıoğlu açısından önemli bir sınavın da pazartesi günü meclis plan ve bütçe komisyonunda yaşanacağını dile getirdi. Göreve gelmesinden bu yana ilk kez TBMM'ye sunum yapacak olan MB Başkanının muhalefet milletvekilleri tarafından soru yağmuruna tutulmasının ve köşeye sıkıştırılmasının beklendiğini kaydeden Doğan, Kavcıoğlu'nun sergileyeceği performansın görevde kalması ya da alınması açısından da Erdoğan için büyük ihtimalle belirleyici olacağı yorumunu yaptı. ABD Başkanı Joe Biden'ın Suriye konusunda Kongre'ye gönderdiği Ulusal Acil Durum Kararnamesi'nin bir yıl daha uzatılmasıyla ilgili açıklamalarında Türkiye'ye ağır ithamlar yöneltmesinin yanı sıra Türkiye'yi ABD dış politikası ve güvenliği için tehdit olarak nitelendirmesine Erdoğan'ın sessiz kaldığına dikkat çekti. Biden'a Dışişleri Bakanı Çavuşoğlu'nun yanıt verdiğini belirten Doğan; “Biden'ın oldukça ağır ve bir NATO müttefikini suçlayan, sivillerin hayatını tehlikeye atmakla, ABD'nin güvenliğini tehdit etmekle itham eden bu ifadelere iktidarın çok sert karşılık vermesi gerekirdi. Ancak Cumhurbaşkanı Sözcüsünden ya da Erdoğan'ın kendisinden bir tepki gelmedi. Daha önce, Trump'ın ağır hakaretler içeren mektubunda ya da Biden'ın Erdoğan'ı aradığı ilk telefonda Ermeni soykırımı iddialarını resmi olarak tanıyacağını bildirmesinde sergilenen sessizlik ve alttan alma tavrı, bu kez de gözleniyor. Anlaşılan Erdoğan, ay sonunda Roma'da yapılacak G20 zirvesinde Biden ile açıklanan görüşme randevusunu tehlikeye atmak istemiyor. Ancak Biden'ın sözlerine ve kullandığı ifadelere baktığınızda da adeta Erdoğan'a ‘Roma'da görüşmesek de olur veya Roma'daki görüşmeden bir şey bekleme' mesajı veriyor” dedi.

In Our Own Worst Enemy, Tom Nichols challenges the current depictions of the rise of illiberal and anti-democratic movements in the United States and elsewhere as the result of the deprivations of globalization or the malign decisions of elites. Rather, he places the blame for the rise of illiberalism on the people themselves. Nichols traces the illiberalism of the 21st century to the growth of unchecked narcissism, rising standards of living, global peace, and a resistance to change. Ordinary citizens, laden with grievances, have joined forces with political entrepreneurs who thrive on the creation of rage rather than on the encouragement of civic virtue and democratic cooperation.

This summer's hasty and poorly executed withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan caused shock and profound unease among Washington's allies, just as they hoped the unilateralism of the Trump era had been left behind. But anxiety about America's position on defence only intensified with the unveiling in September of AUKUS - a trilateral security pact involving Australia, the US and UK covering the Indo-Pacific region. The exclusion of France from that deal not only enraged Paris but also further alarmed European allies about American intentions. So what next? Can the Biden administration be trusted to uphold the security guarantee which underpins NATO? Or, as France's President Emmanuel Macron argues, do these and other actions by the United States show that the 70 year-old Alliance is effectively "brain dead" and that Europe has to set about achieving "strategic autonomy" without depending on Washington's whims? In a lively forum with key players and thinkers about European security from both sides of the Atlantic, Edward Stourton considers what should happen now on European defence and whether seemingly divergent views about it can be reconciled. Those taking part: Professor Malcolm Chalmers, Deputy Director of the Royal United Services Institute in London; Nathalie Loiseau, MEP, former French Minister of European Affairs and Chair of the European Parliament's Sub-committee on Security and Defence; Dr Constanze Stelzenmüller, expert on Germany and trans-Atlantic Relations in the Center on the United States and Europe at the Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C.; and Linas Linkevicius, former Foreign and Defence Minister of Lithuania.

It's not easy to talk in Tripoli; Palestinian anger over Nizar Banat's death; the MH17 trial in the Netherlands; Rwandan forces in Mozambique; a number plate dispute in the Balkans In Libya, the promise of a new dawn after the overthrow of the Gaddafi regime a decade ago now seems to ring hollow. After its revolution came civil war – as militias proliferated and fought for control. For more than six years the country was split between rival administrations in the east and west. There's been a ceasefire since last year, and an internationally-brokered unity government is now installed. Elections are planned for December. Daily life for Libyans hasn't got much easier though. There are still frequent electricity blackouts, high unemployment – and regular street protests. But Tim Whewell was more struck by a sense of creeping silence. In Ramallah, a military trial has begun this for 14 members of the Palestinian security forces, charged in connection with the death of a prominent critic of the president. Nizar Banat – who was known for his outspoken Facebook posts alleging corruption among the Palestinian political elite – was badly beaten and died shortly after he was taken into custody in June. The official line was that he'd died of natural causes. But his death sparked some of the biggest protests against the Palestinian Authority in years.. Yolande Knell reports on the case - and the public anger it's triggered. Since 2017, Mozambique has been trying to stop a shadowy insurgency in its northern province, Cabo Delgado. The rebels there claim to be affiliated to the Islamic State – but little is known about the group. It started with small-scale, isolated attacks, but the conflict escalated last year, driving hundreds of thousands of people from their homes. It is estimated that 2,500 people have died in the fighting so far. This March the militants gained the world's attention when they launched attacks in the gas-rich area of Palma, forcing French petroleum giant Total to shut down its operations there. To fight back, Mozambique has called on help from military forces from Rwanda – who now say they've retaken 90% of the province in a month-long operation. The rebels have now been pushed deep into the area's forests - but Mozambique says it is not claiming victory yet. Anne Soy has been to the region with the Rwandan forces. A court in the Netherlands has been hearing emotional testimony from those whose relatives died aboard flight MH17, which was brought down over rebel-held eastern Ukraine in 2014. Dutch prosecutors have brought charges against three Russians and a Ukrainian citizen: they are all suspected of having key roles in transporting the missile system used to launch the rocket which hit the plane. None of the men have appeared in court; only one has appointed a team of lawyers. Two-thirds of MH17's passengers were Dutch citizens, and the Netherlands blames Moscow for the attack. Anna Holligan has seen and heard some of the evidence submitted by the bereaved. Armed conflict can break out for all kinds of reasons. But a row over car number plates seems one of the more unlikely flashpoints. Yet in the Balkans this summer, that's exactly what prompted Serbia to put its troops on high alert, Kosovo to deploy its special police – and NATO to step up its peacekeeping activities in the area. As Guy De Launey knows from long experience – it's always important to consider what's on your number plate before you set off on any journey in the region. Producer: Polly Hope

Jennifer McArdle is an Adjunct Senior Fellow with the Defense Program at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS) and a Product Strategist at Improbable LLC, an emerging global leader in distributed simulation technology for military planning, training, and decision support. Her research focuses on military innovation, readiness, and synthetic training. She currently serves as an expert member of a NATO technical working group that is developing cyber effects for the military alliance’s mission and campaign simulations. Her work has been featured in Real Clear World, The Cyber Defense Review, National Defense Magazine, and War on the Rocks, among others. Ms. McArdle previously served as an Assistant Professor of Cyber Defense at Salve Regina University, where she lectured on the relationship between national security and disruptive technologies. In our interview with Ms. McArdle, we discuss the future of the Synthetic Training Environment, flexibility and scalability in training systems, and the critical need for a new agile approach to training that can keep pace with the dynamic character of warfare. The following bullet points highlight key insights from our interview: Synthetic training will be instrumental in providing the next generation of Soldiers with the tools they need to succeed in a new era of warfare. The adoption of synthetic training and simulation will empower realistic individual and collective multi-echelon and multi-domain training and mission rehearsal, advanced wargaming, and enhanced decision-making. The New American Way of Training Initiative at CNAS examines how the military will be required to train and fight in the future, using the Cold War as a model. During the Cold War, intense tension and sporadic ‘hot’ proxy conflicts spurred a series of innovations that required radical changes to military training and organization. This new CNAS initiative will help ensure that our future individual and collective training programs meet the needs of our warfighters, today and in the future. The DoD should focus on developing modular synthetic training architectures, enabling it to adapt training and simulations more readily as warfare evolves. This method differs from current synthetic simulators, which are monolithic in nature (i.e., large, complicated, and un-editable platforms). Modular training simulations will give future Soldiers ‘degradation dominance,’ or the ability to maintain high levels of performance under duress. The DoD should require modular components of training platforms in future acquisition contracts. Such contracts will also reduce cost for the DoD, as updating platforms will require less overhaul than monolithic platforms. Synthetic training is particularly important for success in

Twenty years after the most terrifying submarine disaster in naval history, the untold story about why the Russians buried the truth and how Vladimir Putin used the incident to ignite a new Cold War finally comes to light. A decade after the Cold War and just a few months after Vladimir Putin came to power, a violent explosion sent the Russian submarine Kursk to the bottom of the Barents Sea. The Russians claimed an outdated torpedo caused the incident and refused help from the West while twenty-three survivors died before they could be rescued. When Russian naval officers revealed evidence of a collision with a U.S. spy sub, Putin squelched the allegations and fired the officers. In Spies of the Deep, the New York Times bestselling author of Red November shatters the lies told by both Russian and U.S. officials and exposes several shocking truths. Included are never-before-revealed facts and firsthand accounts from deep sea rescue divers, U.S. submariners, government officials, Russian naval officers, and expert witnesses. Not to mention unveiled evidence of a secret deal between Putin and U.S. President Bill Clinton to avert a nuclear war. Discover how the Kursk propelled Putin to power and how he used its demise to muzzle oligarchs, wrest control of energy firms, rebuild Russia's military, and dominate Arctic resources and sea routes. Spies of the Deep explores how the Kursk incident will be remembered as a pivotal historical event that propelled the world's superpowers into another, far more dangerous Cold War, sparked conflicts in the Arctic, and fueled a resource war that could create an economic nightmare not seen since the Great Depression. Are U.S. and NATO navies already too far behind to deal with new threats from Russia, China, North Korea, and Iran, and if so, how might that impact each of us?
