Can the Trans-Pacific Partnership Reinvigorate Global Trade Talks?
Last week, World Politics Review launched Trend Lines, its new weekly podcast, which will appear every Friday. The show has two sections: In the Briefing, host Peter Dörrie interviews a WPR editor about the week’s most important events. In the Report, a WPR contributor or on-the-ground source takes an in-depth look at a single issue.
In this week's Briefing, WPR Editor-in-Chief Judah Grunstein and Peter Dörrie discuss China’s naval diplomacy, French elections and Iraqi politics. For the Report, Edward Alden of the Council on Foreign Relations joins us to give his insights into global trade negotiations and how the Trans-Pacific Partnership could be key to reviving them.

Editor's note: The discussion of Iran's missile program includes a reference to the test of an ICBM. The test was of a ballistic missile; Iran does not have an ICBM capability. WPR regrets the error.
