Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. Developed by the Foreign Policy Association, the program intends to engage communities and broaden public involvement in foreign affairs.  The Foreign Policy Association provides background information and policy options for the eight most critical issues facing America each year. Participants will view a related dvd and then participate in a discussion, led by Barbara Krebs of the League of Women Voters.

A briefing book is available at the library for check out or purchase.  The group meets on Thursday evenings February 7 through March 28, from 6:30-8:30 pm in the Montrose Library Meeting Room.

  February 7, 6:30-8:30 p.m.

  Refugees and Global Migration

Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?
