Course Description:

In this facilitated discussion group, participants will discuss eight critical topics in the "Foreign Policy Association’s 2018 Briefing Book".

Topics include: The Waning of Pax Americana; Russia’s Foreign Policy; China and America; Media and Foreign Policy; Turkey; U.S. Global Engagement and the Military; South Africa’s Fragile Democracy, and Global Health.

You should enroll in this offering only if you wish to Purchase a Briefing Book through OLLI. (Membership in OLLI is a requirement, as is $26 to cover the cost of the book.) Books available while supplies last.

If you own a copy of the 2018 Briefing Book and/or would simply like to attend the discussions for free, you are welcome to do so. To enroll, go to: Great Decisions - Free, no membership required.
