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 on recent Foreign Affairs essays supplemented by material from think tanks, magazines and other sources of analysis and news. Discussion leaderschoose each week’s topics and study materials and provide open-ended questions to guidethe 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 Affairsand themagazine’s weekly email newsletter. Subscriptions to Foreign Affairsare available to OLLI members at a discounted student rate (please contact coordinators for information regarding discount). Thorough preparation and active involvement in our discussions are expected.
