Episode 54: From Russia to Rustbelts: Witness to Democratic Fragility with Fiona Hill

Guest: Fiona Hill

Since her testimony in the 2019 presidential impeachment hearings, Fiona Hill is sounding the alarm on the conditions that lead to populism and democratic decline the world over in her book There Is Nothing for You Here. Drawing comparisons between economic dislocation in places like the Rust Belt, manufacturing regions of England and the former Soviet Union, Dr. Hill exposes the fragility of democracy as a global political system. After her years serving as senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council, she has returned to Brookings as a Senior Fellow in the Foreign Policy Program at the Center on the United States and Europe.
