"Weaponized Interdependence" and the Future of International Relations

Dan Drezner appears on the Global Dispatches podcast to discuss his new co-edited book "The Uses and Abuses of Weaponized Interdependence."

Globalization was always presumed to have a flattening effect; power in a globalized world would be more diffuse and less centralized. A groundbreaking idea, called "Weaponized Interdependence," flips that idea on its head and demonstrates how governments have exploited economic integration to pursue their foreign policy goals and compel foreign adversaries. 

Guest: Daniel Drezner, professor of international politics at the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts and co-editor of the new book The Uses and Abuses of Weaponized Interdependence.
