This study group is made up of fellow members who love to read and desire to learn about the countries of the world through their interactions with one another. We encourage and attract people who have inquisitive minds and are serious about learning and exchanging ideas. We take pride in being inclusive and not intimidating by conducting study groups that are welcoming and tolerate a wide range of documented and convincingly expressed opinions. We start with material from Foreign Affairs, a bimonthly magazine published by the Council on Foreign Relations, but we don’t stop there. Discussion leaders may supplement weekly readings with materials from think tanks (such as The Brookings Institute), mainstream periodicals (such as The Economist, Financial Times, Wall Street Journal, The New York Times), and topical books. The goal of this study group is to be interactive with a healthy exchange of ideas, while still being fun and rewarding. In doing so, we will create our own “think tank” and try to resolve problems and world issues.
