Eye on the Geopolitical Ball

Peace, Security & Defence

Keeping an Eye on the Geopolitical Ball, brought to you by Jamie Shea, Senior Fellow of Friends of Europe and former NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General, provides a weekly overview of the current and emerging crises or threats in security and defence.

Using his past experience as an ex-NATO insider, his in-depth knowledge and insights gained throughout the years, Jamie casts his eye on the state of geopolitics in Europe and across the globe. He brings an independent view and essential insight into a range of conflicts and emerging threats on our shores and further afield.

Keeping an Eye on the Geopolitical Ball is essential viewing for anyone who wants to keep track of events as they unfold.

This week on Keeping an Eye on the Geopolitical Ball, Jamie Shea, Senior Fellow at Friends of Europe, anticipates the options available to the international community to prosecute Putin and his regime for the war crimes they are committing in Ukraine. Reflecting on past successes of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) in the 1990s, Jamie discusses how national and international courts could tackle this new challenge. He also suggests five reasons why it is so important to prosecute Putin’s crimes, from the victims’ perspectives as well as from an international relations angle.
