Gain of pain? Radhika Desai, Director of the Geopolitical Economy Research Group, University of Manitoba


First, they came for the socialists in Cuba, and the world did not speak out because it didn’t feel the pain. Then they came for the mullahs in Iran, and the world did not speak out because the pain was easy to ignore. And then they came for their adversaries in Russia, and the world finally took notice because the pain became all too palpable. Given the global consequences of the West's sanctions against Russia, has the international community got enough stamina to stand up against the weaponization of an economy for geopolitical interests? To discuss this, Oksana is joined by Radhika Desai, Professor at the Department of Political Studies, and Director of the Geopolitical Economy Research Group at the University of Manitoba.

The interview was held on the sidelines of the 19th annual meeting of the Valdai Discussion Club.
