Great Decisions: Turkey's Challenges

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The name is shared by a national civic-education program, briefing book and television series administered and produced by the Foreign Policy Association.  The Great Decisions program highlights eight of the most thought-provoking foreign policy challenges facing Americans each year. Great Decisions provides background information, current data and policy options for each issue and serves as the focal text for discussion groups.  In partnership with the World Affairs Council of Harrisburg, this year's discussion group will meet every other Monday afternoon at 1:00 pm. 

 

The third discussion will cover Turkey: a nation at a crossroads, a bridge over an ever-growing chasm between the East and West. Turkey’s first Prime Minister Kemal Ataturk envisioned a modern, democratic nation-state built on the ashes of the Ottoman Empire with strong ties to Europe, not the Middle East. But as the clashes between secular and religious groups and the recent protests in Taksim Square show, the soul of Turkey is still very much up for grabs.   

 

 

Cost: $10 per individual session or $40 covers all eight sessions.  Registration begins February 1.  REGISTER ONLINE or send a check to World Affairs Council of Hbg/Walnut St. & N. 4th St/ 234 Strawberry Square/ Harrisburg, PA 17101.  Sponsored by Friends of Fredricksen Library.

 

Following sessions are:

  • Monday, April 7 at 1:00 pm: Turkey’s challenges 
  • Monday, April 21 at 1:00 pm: Islamic awakening   
  • Monday, May 5 at 1:00 pm: Energy Independence 
  • Monday, May 19 at 1:00 pm: Food and Climate
