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 November isĀ State of the State Department and Diplomacy by Nicholas Burns

During the Trump administration, the usual ways of conducting diplomacy have been upended. Many positions in the State Department have never been filled, and meetings with foreign leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin have been undertaken with little advance planning. What effect are these changes having now, and how will they affect ongoing relationships between the United States and its allies and adversaries?

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.

No registration required.
