Published annually by the Foreign Policy Association, the Great Decisions briefing book features impartial, thought-provoking analyses on eight issues of concern to U.S. policymakers today; these articles form a starting point for all group discussions. The purchase of the briefing book ($28, discounted price with limited availability, or purchase your own e-version for $22.99) is required for participation. The 2020 edition features eight topics: Climate Change, India and Pakistan, Red Sea Regions, Human Trafficking, Northern Triangle, China in Latin America, The Phillipines, and Artificial Intelligence and Data. The briefing book provides historical background, current U.S. policy and alternative policy options, informative maps and detailed graphs, as well as suggested readings and resources for each topic.
