Great Decisions, a non-partisan discussion forum, provides education on important American policy issues. Each program features a presenter with expertise in the topic, who will set the stage for the discussion of diverse viewpoints.
Participants are encouraged, but not required, to checkout or read the desk copy of the Great Decisions briefing book—available at the Galaxie Library—prior to the program.
Great Decisions is a nationally recognized model for foreign policy discussions sponsored by the Foreign Policy Association, coordinated statewide by Global Minnesota, and sponsored locally by District 196 Community Education and Dakota County Library.
Saudi Arabia in Transition
The Saudi Arabian government is attempting to transform the country while also struggling to adjust to the drastic decline in oil revenue. Bipartisan criticism of Saudi Arabia is rising in Congress. Both countries need each other, but they are at a crossroads in bilateral relations.
Presenter Molly Hayes served as the State Department’s counterterrorism advisor for East Africa, desk officer for Kenya, Morocco, Western Sahara and Tunisia, and assistant to the Coordinator for Counterterrorism.
