Policy, Guns and Money: Afghanistan and Covid-19’s impact on Russia and space

In this episode, ASPI’s Genevieve Feely speaks to Susan Harris Rimmer of Griffith University about the Afghanistan peace process and why it’s so important that women are represented and their rights protected in the country.

Then, ASPI’s Michael Shoebridge talks to strategist Paul Dibb about the implications of Covid-19 for Vladimir Putin, Russia and its relationship with China.

And last but not least, Charlie Lyons Jones and Malcolm Davis of ASPI’s defence and strategy program speak about how the coronavirus pandemic is impacting the space industry and how space capabilities have enabled the connectivity required for a workforce that’s shifted in large part to working from home.
