Program 559: Dutch Climate Change Strategies; Nina Khrushcheva In Putin's Footsteps

Release Date: 04-06-2019


We'll hear some of the ways the Netherlands — a country that can’t afford time to argue about climate change — is protecting its citizens from steadily rising seas. Then international-affairs professor Nina Khrushcheva, great-granddaughter of Nikita Khrushchev, tells us what she learned about her motherland when she traveled to towns in all eleven of its time zones, with a focus on understanding the Russian heartland’s strong support for Vladimir Putin. 


  • Hans de Kefte and Jody van Engelsdorp, tour guides from the Netherlands
  • Nina Khrushcheva, Professor of International Affairs at the New School, and co-author of "In Putin's Footsteps" (St. Martin's Press)
