For over 50 years, the Foreign Policy Association has sponsored discussion groups throughout the United States to investigate some of the world’s greatest challenges affecting our lives. This year's topics are refugees and global migration; regional disorder in the Middle East; nuclear negotiations; the rise of populism in Europe; decoding US–China trade; cyber conflicts and geopolitics; the United States and Mexico partnership; and the state of the State Department and diplomacy. A briefing book and video related to each topic will set the framework for weekly class conversations. There is a $30 materials fee payable to OLLI at registration. Registration for this course is on a first-come, first-served basis.
