Description

The New Cold War: Russia, Political Warfare and Western Democracy

American democracy—and western liberal democracies more broadly—are under attack. Our elections, our public debates, and our social fabric are under sustained attack from a Russian government determined to rekindle a new Cold War. In this talk, Dr. Jim Ludes blends history and contemporary events for an understanding of the nature of the threat and the steps every citizen can take to contribute to the republic’s defense.

Dr. Jim Ludes is Vice President for Public Research and Initiatives at Salve Regina University in Newport, RI, as well as Executive Director of the university’s Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy. In addition, he is executive producer and co-host of “Story in the Public Square,” a weekly public affairs program broadcast on SiriusXM’s POTUS channel as well as Rhode Island PBS. The show is part of a broader Pell Center initiative to study, celebrate, and tell stories that matter.
