Great Decisions

Great Decisions

GREAT DECISIONS is a non-partisan U.S. Foreign Policy discussion group established by the U.S. Foreign Policy Association and sponsored by Global Minnesota.

Nuclear proliferation was a top priority for the Obama administration. While the Iran deal was a diplomatic victory, major threats were emerging to challenge the new U.S. administration. Foremost was North Korea, but also included ongoing threats from Russia, India, and Pakistan. All were challenging non-proliferation efforts. The possibility of terrorists using a “dirty bomb” made from captured materials looked increasingly real. In a fractious world, which way is forward for U.S. Foreign Policy? Our guest speaker  on Tuesday, October 10 at 4 p.m. will be George Welles. He is Principal and Founder of Imaging Futures, Inc. and a Senior Fellow at the University of Minnesota. He had 22 years of experience in leadership positions at research and development technology labs at telecommunications companies before starting his own company. He has worked with many government agencies and Fortune 500 companies including work on nuclear security.  You may register in the office or by calling (651) 227-6311.
