Written by Stephen M. Walt 27 June 2021

An important lesson in geopolitics is “empathy...to do this does not require agreeing with their view; it is about grasping how others see a situation and understanding why they are acting as they are...it’s harder to persuade a rival to alter its behavior if you don’t understand its origins” (Stephen M. Walt, 2021).
