Episode 165: Immigration Reform and Europe’s Collapsing Left

Good evening, listeners! We have another great episode for you this week as host Richard Aldous speaks with Peter Schuck about the difficult (but not impossible!) task of immigration reform, before discussing the current state of play in French and European politics with Alina Polyakova.

First, Peter Schuck, a professor emeritus at Yale Law School, makes his debut on the podcast to discuss why immigration policy is such a tough nut to crack, and how the country might go about making serious, thoughtful changes on that front.

Then, Alina Polyakova, the director of research for Europe and Eurasia at the Atlantic Council, returns to the program to look at the upcoming French election, and what it says about where European politics are today.
