Episode Descriptions:


#1101 Climate Change and the Global Order 

Around the world, sea levels are on the rise. Great Decisions explores how low-lying nations are fighting to ensure their survival and asks what can be done today to prepare for the crisis on the horizon.

#1102 India and Pakistan
With an unprecedented parliamentary majority behind him, can Indian President Narendra Modi deliver on the economic promises that carried him to power, or will his strident brand of Hindu nationalism threaten the world’s largest secular democracy?


#1103 Red Sea Security

More than one-tenth of global trade passes through a strait just 20 miles wide at the southern entrance to the Red Sea. Great Decisions examines a region where the world’s great powers can cooperate to create stability—or allow deepening rivalries to explode into conflict.


#1104 Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking 

Millions of human trafficking victims are hidden in plain sight. Traffickers coerce their victims into forced labor and prostitution. Great Decisions shares the untold stories of trafficking survivors.


#1105 U.S. Relations with the Northern Triangle
Great Decisions examines the Western Hemisphere's migration crisis and the fractured societies at the heart of it: Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. 


#1106 China’s Road into Latin America

Until recently, China had little interest in Latin America. Now, its investment is transforming the region. Great Decisions investigates this new alignment and the prospect of direct competition with the United States.


#1107 The Philippines and the U.S. 

Voters in the Philippines, fed up with a stagnant political system, opted for an unconventional candidate. Great Decisions examines President Rodrigo Duterte's bloody crackdown on drug crime and investigates how he has upended politics as usual throughout Southeast Asia.

#1108 Artificial Intelligence: The Global Race for the New Frontier
A.I.  is transforming economies and societies around the world. Great Decisions assesses the possibilities and dangers of this technology, explores the mounting technological competition between China and the U.S., and asks how the international community can manage the coming wave of digital innovation.
