The Great Decisions Discussion Series is based on a Briefing Book published annually by the Foreign Policy Association. 8 topics are picked by the Association and they contract with a neutral expert to write a background paper on the topic. Topics in recent years have ranged from updates on Palestine, Russia, and Brazil to overviews of Privacy in the Digital Age and Human Trafficking. We also are a loose affiliate of the Sonoma County World Affairs Council

For 2022 we expect to return to the traditional format. Participants purchase a book at a discount through the coordinator, read the background material, and then participate in a lively roundtable discussion regarding American Foreign Policy related to the topic under discussion. We normally have 4 discussion groups with about 16 people in each group.
