Negotiated settlement on Ukraine’s neutrality needed before Putin resorts to ‘hideous’ violence – Prof. James Robinson (E1118)

On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to Prof. James Robinson, a political scientist and economist at the University of Chicago’s Harris School for Public Policy. He discusses the nationalistic motivations behind Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, the severe economic cost to Russia and whether increased trade with China can cover the damage, negotiated neutrality for Ukraine on the question of NATO membership before Putin resorts to “hideous” violence, the Ukraine war’s implications for China’s attempts to reunify with Taiwan, and much more.
