Annual world affairs discussion series begins this month

The public is invited to voice their opinions on world affairs and U.S. foreign policy during Illinois College’s 33rd annual Great Decisions series which begins Tuesday, January 22.

The eight-week discussion group meets Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. in Room 106 of Baxter Hall. Topics this year include the future of the Euro, Egypt, NATO, Myanmar, Iran and China’s role in Africa. The program’s briefing book can be purchased online at

The Great Decisions program is organized nationally by the Foreign Policy Association which provides participants with background information on current world affairs. At each session participants discuss an issue for an hour and then spend 15 minutes voting on an opinion ballot.
