About Great Decisions: Great Decisions is America's largest discussion program on world affairs and is organized by the Foreign Policy Association. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book, watching the video series and meeting in a discussion group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. Each year, eight topics are chosen by a panel of experts. The grassroots, face-to-face model adopted by Great Decisions more than 60 years ago continues today, with tens of thousands of participants taking part in discussions nationwide annually.
