Discussion Groups for March 2019

To see a list of recent Discussion Group events, click here.

From January through March, WACMB presents Great Decisions, an eight-week program produced by the Foreign Policy Association of America (FPA). Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Each year, the program provides background information and policy options for eight of the most critical issues facing the United States; this information serves as the focal text for discussion groups all across the country, including ones at MPC and OLLI/CSUMB.

Great Decisions is free and open to the public.

The following topics will be discussed in March:

  • Decoding US-China Trade
  • Cyber Conflicts and Geopolitics
  • The US and Mexico: Partnership Tested
  • State of the State Dept. and Diplomacy.

Briefing Books are available for purchase from the moderators at each site on a first come/first served basis. Or order online on the Great Decisions website or by calling 1-800-477-5836. Ordering by phone or online may be more expensive than buying in person.
