"Knowledge is power. Information is liberating. Education is the premise of progress, in every society, in every family."
-Kofi Annan, 1997

Great Decisions consists of in-depth conversations about some of today's most complicated and important U.S. foreign policy topics: The EU; The Truth about Trade, Jobs and Politics; Navies and Sovereignty: China and the United States in the South China Sea; Saudi Arabia in Transition; U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum; A New Political Era in Latin America: From Ideology to Pragmatism?; Afghanistan and Pakistan; and Nuclear Security. Reservations are not required. We highly recommended that participants come prepared by reading the article on each session's topic.

8. Nuclear Security: By Todd Stephen Sechser

Nuclear nonproliferation was a top priority for the Obama administration. While the Iran Deal was a diplomatic victory toward this end, major threats persist from both state and non-state actors. Countries like North Korea, Russia, and India and Pakistan continue to challenge nonproliferation efforts. The possibility that terrorists will carry out an attack using a “dirty bomb,” made from captured nuclear materials, looks increasingly real. In a fractious world, which way forward for U.S. nuclear security policy?

Suitable for: Adults

5. U.S. Foreign Policy and Petroleum: Jonathan Chanis

What is the effect of U.S. petroleum security on foreign policy? For 45 years, the country has alternated between periods of energy security and insecurity, sometimes able to wield petroleum as a useful instrument of foreign policy, sometimes not. Despite the so-called “energy revolution,” the U.S. today is by no means disentangled from foreign dependence and global trends. In order to be successful, policymakers must recognize both petroleum security circumstances and patterns in the relationship between petroleum and foreign policy. 

Suitable for: Adults
