We’re Back! Relaunching Power 3.0

Welcome back to the Power 3.0 podcast! Here at Power 3.0, we explore how new forms of authoritarian influence are reshaping the contest over democratic values. On monthly episodes, we’ll be talking with remarkable guests about their expertise and personal experiences. You’ll hear from civil society activists, journalists, researchers, and other leaders on the frontlines of the fight to defend democracy. Through these conversations, we’ll tackle some of the most pressing global challenges to democracy and deepen our understanding of the modern authoritarian playbook. The fight for democracy is personal for many of us—and it’s about more than playing defense. We hope the inspirational stories we share on this podcast will energize on-the-ground efforts to bolster democratic resilience.

Subscribe to Power 3.0 to automatically receive the latest episodes, and tune in now to our brand new conversation with professor Jason Sharman about how Russia’s war in Ukraine is shaping efforts to tackle transnational kleptocracy.
