This year’s “Great Decisions” Foreign Policy Series, presented by the Dunwoody United Methodist Church, will begin Jan. 24 with Dr. Vicki Birchfield speaking on the topic of the future of the euro.
The eight-part lecture series, intended to increase understanding of world affairs, will cover a range of topics including Egypt, NATO, Myanmar and Southeast Asia, humanitarian intervention, Iran, China in Africa, and threat assessment. A briefing book will provide background information, current data, and policy options for the topics.
Each session will feature different speakers followed by questions and discussion. Speakers for this year’s series in addition to Birchfield include Dr. Carrie Wickam, Dr. Robin Dorff, Dr. Katya Weber, Dr. Mikulas Fabry, Sandra Mackey, Dr. James Gilliam and Dr. Robert Kennedy.
The cost of the lecture series is $30, which includes the briefing book. If sharing a book with a companion, an additional $10 will be added. The cost will be $75 to register for a 2013 Georgia Council for International visitors membership plus the Great Decisions program.
The series will run each Thursday beginning Jan. 24 until March 14 from 7:30-9 p.m. at Dunwoody United Methodist Church, 1548 Mt. Vernon Road.
“Great Decisions” is based on a briefing book from the non-partisan Foreign Policy Association and sponsored by GCIV. For more information or to register, visit the GCIV website gciv.org/programs/gd/dunwoody/ or call 404-832-5560 ext. 17.
