Friday, April 6, 2018

In this week’s Trend Lines podcast, WPR’s editor-in-chief, Judah Grunstein, managing editor, Frederick Deknatel, and associate editor, Omar H. Rahman, discuss what Hungary’s upcoming election reveals about the state of democracy in Europe, and the growing risks of a trade war between the United States and China. For the Report, Tracy Brown Hamilton talks with WPR’s senior editor, Robbie Corey-Boulet, about why a national debate over racial discrimination in the Netherlands is becoming increasingly acrimonious.
