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, The Middle East: Regional Disorder, Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?, The Rise of Populism in Europe, Decoding US-China Trade, Cyber Conflicts and Geopolitics, The United States and Mexico: Partnership Tested, and 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 $29 materials fee payable to OLLI at registration.
