The coronavirus has starkly illustrated how the internal governance of nation states matters to international affairs. So after years of American retreat from promoting democracy and human rights around the world, how should a new administration return to supporting the core transatlantic values that have long underpinned our security and prosperity? Greg and Susan talk to the author of a new George W. Bush Institute report, Nicole Bibbins Sedaca, her colleague Lindsay Lloyd, and Dan Baer, US ambassador to the OSCE under the Obama administration.
