Each year the International Relations Group discusses critical and timely topics chosen by the Foreign Policy Association (FPA) and published in its popular Great Decisions guide. The website (www.greatdecisions.org) provides resources for further study, including monthly newsletter, videos, blogs, supplemental readings, podcasts, opinion ballots, and Twitter feeds to follow.
Meetings are generally held on the first Monday of the month at the Pinellas Park Library at 2 pm, from September through April. Join us at one or more of the meetings remaining in the 2014-2015 schedule where lively discussion by participants follows presentations.
