We live in a challenging world. Opportunities and threats arise from global trade, terrorism, human rights abuse, climate change, technology, military power, the drug trade and other similar issues. The goal of this study group is to provide a lively forum for discussing how these challenges are addressed by the United States, other nations and global institutions. Each week’s discussion focuses recent Foreign Affairs essays, supplemented by material from think tanks, magazines and other sources of insight and analysis. Our discussion topics are selected by the group. Discussion leaders choose each week’s study materials and provide open-ended questions to guide our discussion. The group is limited in size to provide each participant an opportunity to lead a discussion and explore topics of interest. Participants should have a subscription to Foreign Affairs and its weekly email newsletter. Discounted student subscriptions to Foreign Affairs are available to OLLI members. Thorough preparation and active involvement in our discussions are expected. All
materials will be posted on Canvas and distributed by email. You should be able to use Northwestern’s online library of e-Journals. We will examine some of the most important issues of our times. Please join us!
