World Policy On Air, Ep. 123: “Infrastructure & Insurgency”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

To convince residents to support an occupying force, the logistics of counterinsurgency are as significant as the actual fighting. On this week’s episode of World Policy On Air, we talk with University of London professor of politics Laleh Khalili about how the U.S. and Israel use road construction to reach political and tactical ends in Afghanistan and Palestine.

Read Laleh Khalili’s piece “The Roads to Power: The Infrastructure of Counterinsurgency” in the spring issue of World Policy Journal.
