OLLI once again offers the annual Great Decisions discussion program on world affairs developed by the Foreign Policy Association. Each week we'll examine and discuss one of the following six topics:

  • The waning of Pax Americana
  • Russia’s foreign policy
  • China and America: the new geopolitical equation
  • Media and foreign policy
  • U.S. global engagement and the military, and
  • South Africa’s fragile democracy.

Suggested Reading: The Great Decisions 2018 Briefing Book can be ordered from the Foreign Policy Association online at www.fpa.org
