In this issue, Section I on the war in Ukraine and its impact on global food security is meant for all readers. Those in Europe may wish to continue to Section II, which provides the latest from Capitol Hill as U.S. voters gear up for autumn’s midterm elections. American readers may want to skip to Section III for some of the latest happenings in Brussels vis-à-vis EU enlargement. We hope readers everywhere will enjoy the fun fact in Section IV.
