February 27 – The Future of Europe

Great Decisions 2017 begins February 27 with a program on the future of Europe. Today Europe finds itself in the midst of what some observers have termed “the worst political crisis since World War II.” In addition to Brexit and the potential breakup of the EU, issues related to immigration, a newly aggressive Russia, terrorist attacks, and a battered Euro are just some of the problems Europe is facing. How will these issues impact the relationship between the U.S. and Europe? Our speaker for this program is Mary Curtin, Diplomat in Residence at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and retired Foreign Service officer.

Join the Grace Great Decisions group for an informative and timely discussion. Everyone is invited. If you are not a member of Great Decisions, there is a small charge to attend.
