As a proud member of NATO and the EU, Estonia exemplifies the Western orientation of the Baltic states and has been a key player in advancing democracy, transatlantic cooperation, and cybersecurity at the state level. However, recent challenges — in the East and the West — risk stifling this cooperation and the post–Cold War global order. Both the transatlantic alliance and the values that unite it are being questioned on all fronts.

Please join AEI for remarks by Estonian Prime Minister Jüri Ratas on how to preserve the transatlantic alliance from these challenges. After his speech, AEI’s Leon Aron will lead a discussion, followed by questions from the audience.

This audio first appeared at an AEI event held on October 30, 2019, at AEI’s headquarters in Washington, DC.

This June, the Women's Bureau in the US Department of Labor is celebrating 100 years of advancing the well-being of working women. From its inception, a central focus of the agency's work has been childcare.

Family childcare -- provided in homes rather than institutional settings -- is the preferred choice of many working women. Running a home-based childcare business has also long been an important avenue for women's entrepreneurship, especially in low-income communities. Yet since 2005, the licensed family childcare sector has lost almost 100,000 providers, declining by 44 percent.

Please join AEI on the 100th anniversary of the Women's Bureau for a special webinar on family childcare. What is uniquely valuable about home-based childcare? What is causing its decline? What is needed now to restore this crucial sector -- especially in a post-COVID-19 world?

This audio first appeared at an AEI event held on June 12, 2020, at AEI's headquarters in Washington, DC.

While Russian election interference caught most Americans off guard in 2016, the countries of Central and Eastern Europe were not surprised. From the Czech Republic to the Balkans to Georgia, Moscow has used tactics ranging from coup attempts to the funding of political parties and disinformation campaigns to meddle in domestic politics. What lessons can the US apply from these countries' experiences to defend its own elections?

Please join AEI's Ivana Stradner and Frederick W. Kagan for a virtual conversation with a panel of Central and Eastern Europe experts. They will discuss the threats Moscow's meddling poses to their countries, how their governments have responded to Russian hybrid tactics, and what lessons the US should draw from their experiences.

"We're all in this together" has become an inspirational rallying cry amid the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent shutdowns. But never before have Americans been so far apart. Children are out of school. Our neighborhood pubs and coffee shops are empty. Main Streets are deserted, and workers do not see their colleagues anymore.

How are communities surviving and adapting while communal gatherings are banned? How are families, which depend so much on community support, faring under the added stress?

Two of the finest scholars on family and community -- David Brooks of The New York Times and the Weave Project and Isabel V. Sawhill of the Brookings Institution -- join AEI's Timothy P. Carney to discuss the plight of community and family under the coronavirus pandemic.

This audio first appeared at an AEI event held on June 1, 2020, at AEI's headquarters in Washington, DC.

Was the COVID-19 virus produced in the US? Was it created by the US Army? So Moscow and Beijing would have you believe.

Russia and China aggressively manipulate perceptions to achieve their own aims. Their increasingly aggressive information campaigns are converging in method and narrative. What can the US and its allies -- and the average citizen -- do to inoculate against these disinformation viruses?

For the fourth and final episode in a miniseries centered around a new Oxford University report on "Citizenship in a Networked Age," Adam White is joined once again by two of the report's co-authors: Professor Andrew Briggs and Dr. Dominic Burbidge.

They further explore issues raised in the previous two panels' discussions of "Community, Platform, and Institution" and "Algorithmic vs. Democratic Decisionmaking." They then turn to the report's final recommendations, with an eye to the value of civic unity and empathy in fractious times. How do our most personal relationships--with family, friends, neighbors--shape the way we act as citizens in a networked age?

For the third episode in a miniseries centered around a new Oxford University report on "Citizenship in a Networked Age," Adam White explores democratic and algorithmic decisionmaking.

Can we draw a clear distinction between the two categories? How should we understand them in terms of efficiency, accuracy, dignity, and other values? He's joined in this conversation by Cary Coglianese of the University of Pennsylvania, Maleka Momand of Esper, and Ari Schulman of The New Atlantis.

It's
obvious that we live in a networked age, but it is not obvious how to
understand the effects that modern technologies are having on the way will
live, love, relate, and govern. How are social media and other Internet
platforms shaping us -- and how should we shape them?

A
new report from University of Oxford and Templeton World Charity Foundation, "Citizenship in a Networked Age: An Agenda for Rebuilding our
Civic Ideals
," attempts to reckon with such weighty matters, seeking the
relationship between human nature and modern technology. Do the classical paradigms of citizenship account for this
networked age? What virtues ought we cultivate to promote human flourishing in
our new public square?

AEI resident scholar Adam White will explore this report, and some of its themes, in a series of four AEI Events Podcast episodes. And we begin with his conversation with two of the report's authors, Professor Andrew Briggs and Dr. Dominic Burbidge.

Following his convincing electoral victory, Boris Johnson still faces two daunting challenges. The first is to negotiate a permanent economic relationship with the European Union by the end of 2020. The second is to maintain the integrity of the United Kingdom following the Scottish National Party's strong showing in the election.

Our panel of experts, to include the EU and Irish Ambassadors to the United States, discusses Johnson's likely success in meeting those two challenges and the economic and political implications of Brexit for the UK and Europe.

COVID-19 has devastated the US economy, disrupted the nation's food supply chains, significantly affected federal and state safety-net programs for low-income households, and catastrophically damaged the financial well-being of tens of millions of families. These impacts are disproportionately disrupting the lives and incomes of the most vulnerable populations -- perhaps especially children, single-parent households, the elderly, and the homeless -- leading to increasingly widespread concerns about rising food insecurity, hunger, and malnutrition for those populations.

Diane Schanzenbach, Scott Winship, Angela Rachidi, and Joseph Glauber join Vincent Smith, director of agricultural studies at AEI, to discuss the food supply and food insecurity issues created by COVID-19 and current and potential policy responses to address the critically important challenges that the nation faces.

North Korea is the world's most repressive state -- and the Organization and Guidance Department (OGD) is the key apparatus in Pyongyang's administration of tyranny. The OGD may be little known in the United States, but, according to North Korean defector Jang Jin-sung, it is "the only entity that actually matters when it comes to decision-making or policy-making" in the Kim family regime. But what exactly is the OGD, how does it operate, and why do North Korea watchers, American policymakers, and human rights activists need to know about it?

Robert M. Collins lifts the veil on this ominous apparatus in the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea's new report "Organization and Guidance Department: Control Tower of Human Rights Denial". Enjoy this panel discussion with Nicholas Eberstadt on the report and the latest research about the OGD.

Three days before the South Carolina Democratic primary, AEI's election experts convened for the first Election Watch event of the 2020 campaign.

With interest in the 2020 elections at record levels, AEI's Election Watch team returns to help you navigate 2020's important contests.

In addition, they will take an early look at the 2020 Senate and gubernatorial races and discuss the strength of the political parties.

AEI's Election Watch program has provided election analysis in all 20 presidential and congressional election years since 1982. The series is the longest-running election analysis program in Washington.

More than 20,000 youth age out of the foster care system every year. Independent research and government statistics reveal stark outcomes for these young adults, including disproportionately high rates of incarceration. Some experts now claim there exists a "foster care-to-prison pipeline," calling into question the efficacy of removing children from their homes and decrying the lack of supports offered to transitioning foster youth.

Foster youth face serious trauma, but there is nothing inevitable about their trajectories. Indeed, the interactions between child welfare and law enforcement agencies may be creating more problems than they are solving. Please join AEI's Naomi Schaefer Riley as she leads a distinguished panel of experts on the challenges facing former and current foster youth and their intersection with the criminal justice system.

In his new book, "Trade Is Not a Four Letter Word: How Six Everyday Products Make the Case for Trade" (Avid Reader Press, 2020), Fred P. Hochberg, chairman and president of the Export-Import Bank of the United States from 2009 to 2017, presents an enjoyable and insightful defense of free trade. Drawing on the history of American trade policy and the contemporary reality of intertwined supply chains and taco salads, he explains why and how the current populist turn toward protectionism threatens the welfare of consumers, workers, and entrepreneurs and undermines US foreign policy goals.

Join AEI's conversation about Mr. Hochberg's new book and the politics, economics, and everyday glory of international trade.

Americans are living through a social crisis. In our politics, it expresses itself in polarization and division. In our culture, it looks like alienation, anger, and despair.

While social analysts blame factors such as rising inequality or liberalism's collapse, these explanations are incomplete. The missing ingredient, argues AEI's Yuval Levin, is the dissolution of our institutions and a transformation of what we expect of them. In "A Time to Build: From Family and Community to Congress and the Campus, How Recommitting to Our Institutions Can Revive the American Dream" (Basic Books, 2020), Dr. Levin explains how institutions have devolved from molds to platforms, fueling cynicism and resentment that leads citizens to rally around firebrands who promise to further shatter these systems.

Join the discussion between AEI's Timothy P. Carney and Dr. Levin on rejecting the impulse to dismantle institutions in favor of demanding better of those we have.

Research suggests that childhood poverty impedes children's healthy growth and success in adulthood. In 2015, Congress asked the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine to conduct a study of child poverty in the US and identify evidence-based policies to reduce it. The recently released report, "A Roadmap to Reducing Child Poverty," describes two packages of federal policies that would cut US child poverty by half within a decade.

But what would it take to turn report proposals into congressional authorization for new federal spending? Do key stakeholders agree that reducing child poverty is a priority for federal policy? And if authorized, how much would new federal spending really help poor children?

Join AEI for a presentation on the report, followed by a panel discussion on the realistic prospects for the report's proposals to improve children's lives.

Europe's political landscape is becoming much more challenging, as evidenced by the strong showing of populist parties in the recent European parliamentary elections and by the deepening Brexit crisis.

Both political parties frequently argue that the American dream is in peril. They say hard work does not pay off, wages have been stagnant for decades, the middle class is shrinking, the US is no longer upwardly mobile. In their minds, the game is rigged, but not by them. Instead, populist frustration says some "other" -- the elites, the rich, immigrants, or China -- is to blame for today's economic outcomes.

In "The American Dream Is Not Dead: (But Populism Could Kill It)" (Templeton Press, 2020), AEI's Michael R. Strain argues against this assessment. He uses persuasive, under-reported evidence to prove that the American dream is alive and well.

Join AEI's discussion with Dr. Strain on the economic evidence in favor of the American dream and why we must reject populist rhetoric.

President Trump has drastically shaken up America's foreign policy establishment, from how the US treats its allies to its approach toward sovereignty and global institutions. The Taliban peace deal to withdraw US forces while releasing thousands of Taliban prisoners is just one example. But where does Trump's foreign policy fit into American history and, in particular, the conservative tradition?

In "Age of Iron: On Conservative Nationalism" (Oxford University Press, 2019), Colin Dueck tells the story of Republican foreign policy since the 20th century. He describes the shifting coalitions and priorities that have shaped policy, arguing that conservative nationalism is actually the oldest democratic tradition in US foreign relations.

Join his discussion with AEI's Hal Brands on Trump's place in this history and the outlook on conservative foreign policy in the era of renewed great-power competition.

While there is no shortage of discussion about how war between the US and China could break out, few have asked how such a war might end. During crisis or conflict, how can we draw China to the negotiating table? How has China historically ended its wars, and how might this inform how the US approaches China diplomatically in peacetime, crisis, and war?

In her new book, "The Costs of Conversation: Obstacles to Peace Talks in Wartime" (Cornell University Press, 2019), Oriana Skylar Mastro asks: How can we get from fighting to talking? Join Dr. Mastro, Susan Thornton, and Tom Christensen as they discuss US diplomacy with China in an era of great-power competition.

In recent months, protests rocked the Middle East. Prime ministers have resigned in Iraq and Lebanon. Hundreds of protesters were gunned down in Iran. Libya continues to boil.

For decades, US foreign policy in the region has been on autopilot: seek Arab-Israeli peace, fight terrorism, and futilely urge regimes to respect human rights. Every US administration puts its own spin on these initiatives, but none has successfully resolved the region's fundamental problems.

Please join AEI for the release of Michael Rubin and Brian Katulis' new edited volume, "Seven Pillars: What Really Causes Instability in the Middle East?" (AEI Press, 2019)they and the book's authors tackle the core drivers of conflict and instability in this vital part of the world.

As the Coronavirus spreads through East Asia and dominates news cycles, we reflect on the lessons learned from the world's last major outbreak: Ebola. Listen to this audio from AEI's June 26, 2019 event with discussing the threat and methods of containment and treatment.

Since last August, history's second-deadliest Ebola outbreak has left over 1,400 dead in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The outbreak is in conflict-plagued eastern DRC, where frequent militia attacks and human displacement have frustrated efforts to contain it. The rate of infection is accelerating, and the epidemic threatens to spill into neighboring countries. Governments, health officials, and international organizations face tremendous obstacles in containing the disease.

Join the discussion with Admiral (Ret.) Tim Ziemer, Ramsey Day, Tomas Cihlar, Ken Isaacs, and AEI's Paul Wolfowitz, as they discuss the Ebola outbreak in the DRC, its regional implications, and policy options to confront it.

Under Xi Jinping, the People's Republic of China has married global ambitions to pervasive social control. Through surveillance and suppression, military modernization, and predatory industrial policy, Xi and the Chinese Communist Party seek to cement totalitarian rule in China, gain hegemony in the Indo-Pacific, and ensure China becomes the dominant global player. As such, China challenges America's regional interests, pressures Taiwan and other regional allies, and threatens Hong Kong, ethnic Uighurs, and millions more.

What are leaders in Congress doing to counter China? What are the elements of a legislative response, including in foreign policy, national security, development, and human rights reforms?
