Global Security Briefing Podcasts

Insights on contemporary regional security developments around the world.



The intensifying geopolitical and geo-economic contest between the US and China, as well as the emergence of competing centres of power and influence in Eurasia, Europe, the Middle East and the Indo-Pacific, are creating increased international tensions, risks of conflict and growing military confrontation.

The Global Security Briefing Podcast Series provides regular insights from the RUSI International Security Studies team and leading international experts to help you make sense of the far-reaching changes affecting international security around the globe. A key theme is how the UK can best shape its foreign and security policies in an increasingly dynamic international environment.
