We host a conversation about "Left Internationalism in the Heart of Empire," which is the focus of an essay by Cornell University law professor Aziz Rana in Dissent magazine. Rana argues for the creation of a "transnational infrastructure of left forces across the world" and says movements of the left need "clear alternatives to the hardest questions" of foreign policy crises, such as the Russian war in Ukraine. We also speak with Darryl Li, professor at the University of Chicago, who is one of many scholars who published a response to Rana's piece in the new issue of Dissent that highlights the importance of a nuanced and solution-oriented critical analysis of U.S. foreign policy.
