Course Description: Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs with content created by the Foreign Policy Association. If you are hungry for thought-provoking discussions on world issues, many with serious implications for America, this course is for you. The program covers eight timely topics, which will be presented in each of the discussion sessions. Discussions, led by the study group facilitator, Carol Kunik, will begin with the current situation including conflicting goals, benefits vs costs, opposing geopolitical interests, etc. Then the conversations will move to implications for the future. Should U.S. policy be modified and if so, how? Some topics have sub-set topics appropriate for breakout group discussions and reporting key points back to the class.The reading for the class will be the Great Decisions 2023 Briefing Book in paperback, $35 from the Foreign Policy Association. A less expensive digital book is available for Kindle from Amazon. PLEASE do not enroll unless you are sure you can attend almost all sessions and you are willing to read the Briefing Book prior to class so you can participate intelligently to the class discussion.
