Great Decisions

LWV Piedmont to Host Great Decisions Discussion Groups –

The League of Women Voters of Piedmont is forming discussion groups to participate in the 2019 Great Decisions program on world affairs. Sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association, Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on global matters. The program is a series of eight meetings, lasting approximately two hours each. Participants receive a Foreign Policy Association briefing book which provides background and context for group discussion. Each session starts with an insightful video created by the Foreign Policy Association, followed by a discussion of the week’s topic.

Chosen by a panel of foreign policy experts, this year’s topics are:

1. Refugees and Global Migration
2. The Middle East: Regional Disorder
3. Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future?
4. The Rise of Populism
5. Decoding U.S.-China Trade
6. India and Its Neighbors
7. Cyber Conflicts and Geopolitics
8. State of the State Department and Diplomacy

Meetings will start the week of February 10, 2019 and continue every other week thereafter until the final meeting on the week of May 19th, 2019. There are three separate meeting times as indicated below, you may attend any of the three meetings.
