Event Details

Great Decisions is a program of the non-partisan Foreign Policy Association in which local groups gather monthly to discuss topics associated with foreign policy of the United States. Topic for Nov: Brazil’s Metamorphosis. Brazil–it’s the “B” in the acronym BRICS, five emerging economies once seen as soon-to-be superpowers. After economic troubles in the 1990s, Brazil has rizen to new global prominence–it’s drawing in more investment, working on global issues ranging from climate change to peacekeeping, and even hosting the 2016 Olympics. But some of Brazil’s trickiest problems–deep divisions over how to tackle serious income inequality, weak civic institutions and poor regional leadership–have held it back. The Foreign Policy Institute Briefing Book ($20 a year) provides an article and thought provoking questions for the topic of the month.
