We are living in a rapidly changing and perilous world. International and U.S. policy concerns are so interlaced and changing that they need to be constantly reviewed and re-evaluated. Our study group will analyze specific problems and potential threats as well as opportunities that shape U.S. and global security. Topics will cover the far-reaching ramifications of the security and the well-being of the United States, including the profound implications of world stability. We focus on the historical trends as well as the most current political, economic, and demographic concerns. We will explore and discuss many different viewpoints, using material from the informed and most qualified sources, including pertinent foreign journals. Join us as we explore multifaceted approaches and strategies to many of these complex topics and concerns. Reading matter will come from current articles from both online and printed sources and will be distributed via Canvas or electronically, along with discussion questions, a week prior to each session.
