The World Affairs Council, in partnership with University of Missouri - St. Louis International Studies and Programs, is once again hosting this years series of the Foreign Policy Association’s Great Decisions speaker sessions, and we’d like you to check them out! The issues highlighted in each session are selected at the beginning of the year by the Foreign Policy Association based on the most critical global challenges to United States foreign policy. The program aims to present all sides of each issue in order to inform and educate the public.
