April 5, 2024, Video: "In this episode, we sit down with Paul Tucker, former Deputy Governor of the Bank of England and now research fellow at Harvard University’s Kennedy School, to discuss his book 'Global Discord' and the role of cooperation in a fractured world order. We discuss the continued relevance of David Hume’s work in defining how constitutional democracies can maintain their liberal traditions while cooperating with rising authoritarian states. Tucker emphasises the importance of broadening perspectives and understanding different values in order to achieve cooperation. We also discuss the concept of the West and its significance in the current political landscape. The West should not be limited to a geographically constrained view. Rather, the West is defined by the practice of liberalism. Tucker concludes by highlighting the value of liberal critique and the capacity for learning from mistakes in maintaining order and cooperation."
