In the latest episode of Pod Bless Canada, MLI Munk Senior Fellow Shuvaloy Majumdar was rejoined by Balkan Devlen, a frequent MLI author and an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the University of Copenhagen. Devlen is a foremost expert when it comes to the security policies of Turkey and Russia.

Following up on their discussion from earlier this year, the two discuss Turkey’s recent invasion of Kurdish held territories in Northern Syria and what the situation means for Ankara’s position vis-à-vis NATO and Russia. Majumdar and Devlen explore the complex geopolitical fallout that has emanated from President Trump’s abandonment of the West’s Kurdish allies, and what Canada’s interests are in the region.
