Post Road Meeting Room

During the Trump administration, the usual ways of conducting diplomacy have been upended. Many positions in the State Department have never been filled, and meetings with foreign leaders such as Kim Jong-un and Vladimir Putin have been undertaken with little advance planning. What effect are these changes having now, and how will they affect ongoing relationships between the United States and its allies and adversaries?


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 (Rescheduled for March 26)

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

February 12: The Rise of Populism in Europe presented by Nathan Price
