China’s Road into Latin America
(Chapter 6 in Great Decisions)

The video for this chapter will be shown at our meeting, and we’ll discuss. The Foreign Policy Association, which produces the “Great Decisions” curriculum, has annouced that because many discussions groups are unable to meet because of restrictions on gathering made necessary due to the coronavirus pandemic, all the videos in the 2020 season are now available for free viewing on their YouTube channel. You can find the full video playlist by clicking here.

And while the Briefing Book provides us with a solid background on Topic 6, “China’s Road into Latin America,” there are many additional resources available a the Foreign Policy Association’s website. Click here to go to the page for this topic.

At this Wednesday’s meeting, we will NOT be viewing a podcast presentation by UW Henry M. Jackson Professor of International Studies, David Bachman, as announced earlier. The podcast has not yet been made available, so it will be considered for a later meeting. We expect it will feature either Professor Bachman’s 2020 “China and the US: Competition, Rivalry, Cold War?” or his 2019 “Trump in the World” lecture.

Join us for our weekly online/phone meeting. You’ll find the Zoom link via UUC Connect (requires login), or contact the church office. All are welcome.
