Great Decisions is America’s largest civic-education program on U.S. foreign policy and global affairs. The Great Decisions program is produced by the Foreign Policy Association to provide guidelines for starting and promoting Great Decisions discussion groups. It began in 1954 and the program has been active in Tulsa through the Friends of the Tulsa City-County Libraries for close to 50 years. There is a briefing book that highlights eight of the most thought-provoking foreign policy challenges facing Americans. It provides background information, current data and policy options for each. Most importantly though is that it serves as the focal text for discussion groups. The book costs $22 and will be available for purchase with cash or a check.

The 2020 topics are: "Climate Change," "India and Pakistan," "The Red Sea Region," "Human Trafficking," "Northern Triangle," "China in Latin America," "The Philippines" and "Artificial Intelligence and Data."
