Join former senior director for European and Russian affairs on the National Security Council Fiona Hill and Jeff Greenfield as they discuss communities left behind economically and politically on both sides of the Atlantic — and her new book, There is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the 21st Century.
Before Americans got to know Hill as a key policy expert and witness in the first impeachment trial of Donald Trump, her upbringing in a working-class coal mining community in the North East of England imbued her with a keen sense of the toxic effects of deindustrialization and economic depression. Hear her and Greenfield discuss her deeply personal story of leaving home and becoming an American citizen, what her years of experience working as a Russia expert in the U.S. government taught her about the relationship between opportunity and democracy, and what we can do to help ensure a brighter future for generations to come.
