MPL is proud to present Great Decisions 2022, our 15th year of hosting this preeminent eight-week grassroots lecture series.

Every Monday, February 7 through March 28, from 6-8PM.

Great Decisions, a project of the Foreign Policy Association, is a grassroots world affairs education program which brings together Americans from across the nation to discover and discuss foreign policy issues. Over the course of eight weeks, scholars will introduce each issue, and participants may explore their own views and those of the group.

Myanmar and ASEAN: The situation in Myanmar, including the coup by the military in February 2021 and the ongoing human rights crises, coupled with civil resistance by those opposed to the regime, has led to the chaos in the Southeast Asian country.
