Beginning on January 19, 2013 and running eight consecutive Saturday mornings, ECU will host the Foreign Policy Association's Great Decisions Program The program is sponsored by the World Affairs Council of Eastern North Carolina. The Program consists of a series of lectures by academic and professional experts on topics of global significance. The 2013 topics are Threat Assessment,China in Africa, Myanmar and Southeast Asia, Future of the Euro, Egypt, NATO, Iran and Intervention. Each session will run from 10:00am -12:00pm, beginning with an hour-long lecture, followed by a short break with refreshments and then a question and answer period. Following the tradition of the Foreign Policy Association (FPA), attendees will then have the opportunity to voice their opinion on the topic by "voting" for or against certain foreign policy positions for the U.S. government. Each year, the FPA consolidates the results of the voting by citizen groups all over the country participating in The Great Decisions Program and presents them to the Secretary of State, as an example of citizen interest and involvement in international issues.
