A major obstacle to extending the minimal model program away from characteristic zero is the lack of cohomology vanishing theorems such as Kodaira vanishing. In this talk we describe the minimal model program and then discuss a new way to overcome this difficulty in the arithmetic situation, which has enabled the development of the minimal model program for arithmetic threefolds of residue characteristic greater than 5. This is joint work with Bhatt, Ma, Patakfalvi, Schwede, Tucker and Witaszek.
