Deep Dive - A Special Joint Project with Foreign Policy and The Brookings Institution

Deep Dive

Deep Dive is all about convening a debate -- an in-depth policy conversation on the world's most pressing issues. Each month, we'll tackle a new subject from the top of the Washington agenda, combining the in-depth study of the Brookings Institution with the in-the-moment authority of Foreign Policy's editorial team. You'll hear from top players from Capitol Hill, the executive branch, and global decision-makers -- as well as FP's host of well-known expert contributors and writers -- as we go deep on the issues shaping Washington's intersection with the world. Expect penetrating analysis, new data and insights -- and more than a little heated debate. Our hope is to keep the conversation going all month long. We hope you'll join in too. Kicking off this month: Brookings policy paper by senior fellow Bruce Jones on managing a changing world order.

How Obama Lost Karzai Stanley McChrystal on War War and Peace Madlibs

The War Issue -- FP's second annual special edition looking at the world of hard power -- comes at an urgent moment, when the United States has been at war for nearly a full decade, and is grappling with the very much unfinished task of the conflict in Afghanistan, as well as increasingly pressing questions about the threats and capabilities required in the future wars. From bioweapons to Karzai's tumultuous nine years as Afghanistan's president to where the United States will be fighting its next battle, there's more to the world of war than just guns and tanks.
