Great Decisions, produced by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), is America’s largest civic discussion program on world affairs. Lectures will run weekly each Thursday from March 28 – May 16. Each discussion will cover a topic of great importance to Americans, a short video will be shown, and discussion of American policy will be facilitated. Attend the entire series of lectures or one lecture; no previous registration is required, and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. The program series is co-sponsored by Quimper Unitarian Universalist Fellowship’s Adult Learning Program.

This week we’ll discuss the fallout from policy reversals such as withdrawing from the Iranian nuclear accord and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem. Does the United States see a path forward in troubled states such as Syria, Yemen, Libya and Iraq? Is the United States headed toward war with Iran?
