This week Lara Hollmann and Mariana Vieira present two interviews with recent contributors to Chatham House’s publications, International Affairs and The World Today.
First, Lara speaks to Professor Sophie Harman about her research into the gender dynamics of the COVID-19 pandemic. Sophie argues that for too many policymakers, gendered roles are complacently seen as a solution to the social effects of the pandemic, with women expected to shoulder the additional burdens of domestic work and childcare during national lockdowns.
Then Mariana is joined by Dr Daniel Strieff to discuss the trajectory of climate politics in the United States. They cover the early signs from the Biden administration as well as the domestic forces influencing foreign policy in this area.
