This is the same course as L707 Great Decision 2018, but offered in Fairfax. For over 50 years the Foreign Policy Association has sponsored discussion groups throughout the United States to investigate some of the greatest challenges affecting our lives. This year’s eight topics are: The Waning of Pax Americana?; Russia’s Foreign Policy; China and America: The New Geopolitical Equation; Media and Foreign Policy; Turkey: A Partner in Crisis; US Global Engagement and the Military; South Africa’s Fragile Democracy; and Global Health: Progress and Challenges. A briefing book and video related to each topic will set the framework for eight weekly class conversations. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. There is a $29 materials fee payable to OLLI at registration.
