September 10, 2015. Russia's Soft Power: A Matter for Church and State
Nikolas K. Gvosdev, Nadieszda Kizenko, Nicolai N. Petro
In the current frigid environment of U.S.-Russia relations, there is much debate over Russia’s legitimate strategic interests. Of equal importance for understanding Russian attitudes is a grasp of the values, the moral framework for her foreign policy. Three leading experts on Russia's "soft power" will explain the roles of the state and the Russian Orthodox Church in formulating this framework of values.

September 18, 2015. Is the Eurozone Crisis Over?
Martin Wolf
The eurozone economy is at last beginning to recover, including the crisis-hit countries, except for Greece. But all of the crisis-hit countries have suffered at least a lost decade. Are they now at least securely on the mend? Is the new Greek programme going to work? Has the eurozone been adequately reformed?

September 28, 2015. NATO in the 21st Century: Addressing New and Urgent Challenges
Douglas E. Lute
As recent events indicate, Russia sees NATO as the top threat to Russian interests and has called for increased investment of its naval forces in the Black Sea; Turkey is under siege by ISIS; Libya is unstable and extremism in Iraq and Syria is on the rise. How will NATO address Russian aggression in the Ukraine and in the Baltic Sea? Will NATO also be drawn into the Middle East conflict?

September 30, 2015. Pope Francis Among the Wolves: The Inside Story of a Revolution
Marco Politi
There's no doubt that Pope Francis has changed the tone of the papacy. He's accessible and energetic, where his predecessor seemed reclusive and tired. But in becoming the face of change, Francis has also raised the expectation of change. Will Pope Francis succeed in overcoming his opponents and save the faith from decline?
