Ahead of the G7 summit starting on 11 June, Jeremy Cliffe in Berlin and Emily Tamkin in Washington, DC are joined by Rachel Rizzo, director of programmes at the Truman National Security Project, to discuss what Joe Biden will bring to the table at his first multilateral talks since taking office.
They also look ahead to the US president’s first bilateral meeting with Vladmir Putin, and take your questions on whether the G7 is still appropriate as a global forum.
Jeremy is hosting a live recording of the World Review podcast at the Progressive Governance Digital Summit 2021, and you can be in the audience. Register for tickets here.
Jeremy Cliffe asks if the G7 nations can rebuild a global alliance.
Former UK prime minister Gordon Brown explores how to mend a failing world.
