Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. This program is designed by the Foreign Policy Association to bring people together in study groups to discuss, debate and learn about important global challenges of our time.
This discussion group is sponsored by SCNOVA. Facilitators are Mike Mulreany and Joanna Walker. Anyone of any age with an interest in expanding his/her knowledge of international relations as well as engaging in active discussion of crucial global issues is welcome to join. Each participant’s point of view carries equal weight and everyone is encouraged to share opinions and ideas. Consensus is not a goal. The true focus of the Discussion Group is the critical examination of all issues and opinions, each recognized as equally valid.
Registration is required, as well as the purchase of a briefing book. Limited to 25 participants. Contact Mike Mulreany (firstname.lastname@example.org) to register and for briefing book purchase info.
