The media in a “Twitter universe,” global health, the future of American global leadership, the defense budget and Putin’s Russia are some of the dynamic topics being explored as the World Affairs Council of Western Michigan launches its 2018 Great Decisions Global Discussion Series.

Discussions will take place January 29 through March 26, and feature national scholars and experts—including former ambassador and CEO of the Carter Center Mary Ann Peters, Susan Glasser of POLITICO and Amitav Acharya, UNESCO Chair in Transnational Challenges and Governance at Georgetown University—who will stimulate conversations on global issues and foreign policy.

Each presentation will be available twice—from 12 noon to 1 p.m. in the Recital Hall of the Covenant Fine Arts Center on the campus of Calvin College, and again from 6:00 to 7:15 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center on Aquinas College’s campus.
