WACT Foreign Policy Discussion Group: December Meeting

Registration is closed

Are you interested in discussing America's role in the world?  The World Affairs Council of Tacoma has started a monthly discussion group focused on U.S. foreign policy, to be conducted through Zoom. You don't need to be an expert to participate, just someone who is interested in learning more about topical issues and exchanging views with fellow citizens.

The first discussion in October was on the current status of America's role in the world generally. The December discussion will be on the global crisis of democracy and its implications for American foreign policy. The discussion will be led by Professor Etga Ugur, a political science and international relations instructor at UW Tacoma. In order to get the discussion started, here is a very short article to read:

Larry Diamond, “The Global Crisis of Democracy,” Wall Street Journal, May 17, 2019 (View a PDF of this article here.)

If you are interested in more detailed versions of Diamond’s work, here are links to his article from the Foreign Affairs magazine and to his recently published book:
