In this eight-week series, participants gather to discuss key foreign policy issues facing the world today. Led by volunteer moderators, participants will engage in moderated discussions with their fellow citizens. This year’s topics will include Roles of International Organizations in a Global Pandemic, Persian Gulf Security Issues, NATO Relations and the Future of the Trans-Atlantic Alliance, Struggles over the melting Arctic, US-China Relations, US-Russia Relations, Trade and Immigration Policy in the Americas, and the End of Globalization.

March 9: Brexit and the European Union
With the “Brexit transition period” coming to an end this year, the United Kingdom will formally leave the European Union at the start of 2021. With negotiations between the two entities continuing to stall, what does the future of Europe and the UK look like? Will the UK survive a possible Scottish vote to leave? Who will step up and take command of Europe now that Angela Merkel is out of the spotlight? 

Tuesdays from 6:00-8:00 p.m. beginning Tuesday, January 26, running through Tuesday, March 16. All sessions will take place via Zoom.

Fee: $170, includes all sessions and readings.
