Post Road Library

Post Road Meeting Room

Today, no countries have open borders. Every state in today’s global system has its own laws and policies about who is permitted to cross its borders, and how they will do so. Who determines whether someone is a refugee or a migrant? How have different countries, including the United States, reacted to migration? How effective are the international laws, policies and organizations that have evolved to assist and protect refugees and migrants?

Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs. Forsyth County Public Library and the University of North Georgia(UNG) will present information and lead discussions on a range of fascinating and timely geopolitical topics. 
Each session will be held at the Post Road Library, 5010 Post Road, Cumming and will be led by a member of the UNG faculty.

Topics for 2019 are:

January 22: Refugees and Global Migration presented by Raluca Viman-Miller

January 29: The Middle East: Regional Disorder presented by Victoria Hightower

February 5: Nuclear Negotiations: Back to the Future? presented by Seyed Hamid Serri
