Since 1981, Great Decisions has operated as a forum where the public and the academic community can meet in a congenial setting and talk about world affairs. All eight Great Decisions programs this spring semester are free and open to the public (from January 25-March 22). They are held at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays in the Moot Board Room in the Monmouth College Center for Science and Business.
Great Decisions is a nationwide program sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association, a non-partisan, non-governmental association that works to increase Americans’ understanding of foreign policy issues.
A companion guide, “Great Decisions 2017,” can be ordered online at www.fpa.org. It includes eight chapters, each of which takes about a half-hour to read. The readings are also available on reserve at the College’s Hewes Library.
This year’s topics are as follows:
- The Future of Europe
- Trade and Politics
- Conflict in the South China Sea
- Saudi Arabia in Transition
- U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum
- Latin America’s Political Pendulum
- Prospects for Afghanistan and Pakistan
- Nuclear Security
