India Rising (#604) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Inspired by its "top-down" model for growth, the world's largest democracy has started taking its cues from China, one of America's economic rivals. It's a mindset that led to Modi's election in 2014, and has signaled the developing economy's desire for real change. Now, it's up to the U.S. to determine how to best secure its interests as India asserts itself on the world stage.

The Promise of Africa (#605) Duration: 26:46 STEREO TVG

Africa is in the midst of an unprecedented transformation. The continent is home to some of the fastest growing economies in the world, and it's become a draw for foreign investors from across the globe. After the "Obamamania" of 2008 died down, though, the realization that Obama wasn't going to overturn, or even prioritize, U.S. Africa policy kicked in. How can U.S. policy live up to its promise and values while securing its interests in the region?

Syria: The World's Largest Refugee Crisis (#606) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Syrians have for a century welcomed over a million refugees from Armenia, Palestine, Iraq and other countries around the region. Now, thanks to a multiyear civil war, they are on track to become the source of the world's largest refugee population in a matter of months. As Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and other neighbors strive to accommodate the millions of Syrians, the risk of allowing Syrians to become dependent on emergency aid and forming a "lost generation" remains.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Modern Day Slavery (#607) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Human trafficking represents over $30 billion in international trade per annum and continues to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries. The U.S. and the international community have adopted various treaties and laws to prevent trafficking, but to truly understand and combat the issue, they must find the root causes enabling smugglers to commit millions into slavery.

Upcoming Broadcasts:

Building Brazil (#608) Duration: 29:00 STEREO TVG

Brazil - it's the "B" in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has risen to new global prominence - it's drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil's trickiest problems - staggering income inequality, weak civic institutions, poor regional leadership - have held it back.
