8 sessions: every other Monday starting February 6
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm in the Community Room, Lower Level
Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD and meeting expert speakers in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Each year, eight topics are chosen by Foreign Policy Association's panel of experts.
For the first session, we'll discuss the outcome of the United Kingdom referendum on EU membership that sent shockwaves across the globe. It even caught British voters by surprise. The European Union has helped secure peace in Europe for the past 70 years. Now it faces an uncertain future. Amid a refugee crisis, lingering financial recession and the constant specter of terrorism, unity seems more imperative than ever. But the Brexit vote underscores the complexities of integrating an extremely diverse continent. What will post-Brexit Europe look like, and how can U.S. foreign policy adapt?
In partnership with the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg, this year's discussions will meet every other Monday afternoon at 1:00 pm (2/6, 2/20, 3/6, 3/20, 4/3, 4/17, 5/1, 5/15). Registration is now open. Cost: $10 per individual session or $40 covers all 8 sessions. Free for Associates of the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg.
