Edina Great Decisions: Mideast Realignment

July 29 @ 4:00 pm CDT

/ Free

The United States and the Middle East are at a crossroads. In spite of a reduced presence in the Middle East, the U.S. still has significant national interests in the region. Can the U.S. continue to defend its priorities in the Middle East and globally with a lower level of military and political involvement, or should it recommit to a leading role in the region?

This program is presented by Edina Community Ed through a partnership with the Edina Senior Center, the Edina Library, and Edina Community Center.

The Great Decisions program addresses some of the most critical foreign policy issues facing the United States each year. Global Minnesota facilitates the statewide Great Decisions program by providing access to a roster of local foreign policy experts and to discussion materials produced by the Foreign Policy Association. Great Decisions books contain a articles and materials authored by experts on each topic to provide a nonpartisan basis for understanding the important global issues of our time. A limited number of discounted books are available for purchase by Global Minnesota members and groups ordering ten or more books. Join Global Minnesota and the Friends of the Edina Library at the Edina Community Center for an in-depth discussion of this important topic.
