Event Details

Great Decisions, a national program of the non-partisan Foreign Policy Association, is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. The Potomac Library group meets, usually with a guest speaker, 8 times a year on the first Thursday of the month: February, March, April, May, June, September, October, and November. We meet from 12:30-2:00. The program is free and open to the public. 

  • A copy of the 2018 Briefing Book will be available in late January at the Information Desk.  The book cannot be checked out, but it only takes about an hour to read the relevant article. 

Media and foreign policy By Susan Moeller 

State and non-state actors today must maneuver a complex and rapidly evolving media landscape. Conventional journalism now competes with user-generated content. Official channels of communication can be circumvented through social media. Foreign policy is tweeted from the White House and “fake news” has entered the zeitgeist. Cyberwarfare, hacking and misinformation pose complex security threats. How are actors using media to pursue and defend their interests in the international arena? What are the implications for U.S. policy? 

Sponsored by Friends of the Library, Potomac Chapter.
