Great Decisions 2019

Friday, November 8th  | 7PM - 9 PM | The Sherman Library
The State of the State Department and America Diplomacy

By Nicholas Burns
During the Trump administration, the usual ways of conducting diplomacy have been upended. Many positions in the State Department have never been filled, and meetings with foreign leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin have been undertaken with little advance planning. What effect are these changes having now, and how will they affect ongoing relationships between the United States and its allies and adversaries?

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the DVD and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. 

This year the JCC and The Sherman Library will be co-hosting this event!
