Great Decisions: A Global Affairs Discussion Series

3:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Wilton Library
Rimer Room

Event Details

Please join us for a rerun of this year’s topics in the Great Decisions discussion series focused on current world affairs. Created by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), the Great Decisions discussion series has been run annually by a wide variety of libraries and educational institutions across the country for nearly 60 years - 2023 is Wilton Library’s inaugural year with the program!

The series will highlight eight of the most thought-provoking foreign policy challenges facing Americans in 2023/2024, including such topics as: Energy Geopolitics, China and the U.S., Economic Warfare, Global Famine, and Climate Migration, among others. Each attendee will receive a briefing book (professionally published by the FPA) which includes pre-session readings (about ten pages per week) providing background information, current data, and policy options for each issue. It serves as the focal point for our discussions.

This 8-session course will run weekly for four weeks and continue again after a brief hiatus. Each session will be moderated by rotating volunteer attendees.  Kicking off each session will be a 20-minute Great Decisions video on the topic of the week followed by a moderated discussion. To facilitate an active and engaged discussion, attendance is limited to 30 people, who will be registered for all sessions in the series. Those registrants may pick up their briefing books a week before the series starts.

Because of the attendance limitation and the distribution of our limited set of briefing books, attendees are expected, if at all possible, to attend all sessions. To mark your calendars, here are the dates: 11/1, 11/8, 11/15, (no session 11/22), 11/29, 1/10, 1/17, 1/24, 1/31. We hope to see you at this fascinating series!
