Great Decisions 2019, a program of the United States Foreign Policy Association, will begin meeting on Thursday, January 31st at 1 pm. The group will meet for eight weeks on Thursdays from 1 pm to 3 pm.

Topics for this year’s cycle include: refugees and global migration, disorder in the Middle East, the state of the US State Department and its diplomatic efforts, the rise of populism in Europe, US-China trade, relations between the US and Mexico, nuclear negotiations, and issues of cyber warfare and the influence of actions online on geopolitics.

The Great Decisions format asks participants to read the weekly articles from the Great Decisions book, show up for the weekly meetings to watch a video segment and then hold a discussion on the foreign policy topic of the week. Group members may take turns leading the sessions and may also contribute additional research information if they wish.

Each participant in Great Decisions must purchase a copy of the current book, offered at the price of $32, at the downtown library’s checkout desk. Great Decisions is open to any interested adult regardless of political or any other affiliations.

Registration starts Wednesday, December 19th. Space is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for reserving your spot and purchasing your Great Decisions book is Monday, January 7th.
