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 December isĀ South Africa’s Fragile Democracy: the African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994. Today the party suffers from popular frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation, and faces threats from both left and right opposition parties as well as intraparty divisions. A weaker ANC could lead to political fragmentation in this relatively new democracy.

The Foreign Policy Institute briefing book provides an article and thought provoking questions for the topic of the month. A copy of the briefing book is available for use in the library (not to check out); ask at the Information Desk.

For more information, contact with “Great Decisions” in the subject line.

Organized and sponsored by the Friends of the Library, Potomac Chapter.

No registration required.
