Great Decisions Foreign Policy Association Lecture Series
Media and Foreign Policy
State and non-state actors today must maneuver a complex and rapidly evolving media landscape. Conventional journalism now competes with user-generated content. Official channels of communication can be circumvented through social media. Foreign policy is tweeted from the White House and “fake news” has entered the zeitgeist. Cyberwarfare, hacking and misinformation pose complex security threats.

Ferris Hills hosts the local chapter of Great Decisions each year.This 8 week series of group discussions - facilitated by content experts - takes place in Ferris Hills Community Room from 11:15 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. on Thursdays beginning February 22nd.
