Great Decisions Lecture Series: Refugees and Global Migration

Facilitated by: Dr. Beth Whitaker, Associate Professor, Department of Political Science & Public Administration, UNC Charlotte 

Great Decisions is a national program of the Foreign Policy Association. In North Carolina, the Office of International Programs at UNC Charlotte is the state coordinator. Great Decisions is the largest non-partisan citizen education effort of its kind and has provided quality information and tools for over fifty years.

Each year, the Foreign Policy Association publishes a Great Decisions Briefing Book. The book highlights eight of the year's most significant foreign policy issues. The book provides facts, charts, and nonpartisan analysis of the "great decisions" facing the U.S. public and policy makers. Maps, online services and other resources are available to complement programs. In addition, a DVD series and Teacher's Guide are available for purchase.

The Office of International Programs at UNC Charlotte coordinates a local community lecture series annually. The Charlotte Great Decisions Lecture Series consists of five weekly sessions and is an opportunity for citizens to meet, discuss and learn about some of the issues facing our world.  Each week a local expert from nearby colleges and universities provides additional perspective on the topic of interest and answers questions regarding the information presented in the Briefing Book and through the lecture. A registration form is available below.

More information on the series, including online registration, parking, and venue information, is available at http://oip.uncc.edu/community-engagement/great-decisions.
