Great Decisions Discussion Series

Great Decisions Discussion Series

It's that time again! Eight provocative topics will provide the basis for this always interesting and stimulating global issues discussion series. The more diverse the opinions (and they usually are) the more thought-provoking and rousing the conversations. 
Great Decisions, sponsored by the League of Women Voters Winnetka-Northfield-Kenilworth and the Library, will take place for eight consecutive weeks. Attend one session or all.
Foreign Policy Association briefing booklets containing an informative article on each topic are available for purchase for $20. The library has several copies available for checkout.   For more information or to purchase a booklet, contact Joan Fragen, (847) 446-0184 or 
joanfragen@gmail.com.
Each session begins with a short DVD introduction to the subject, providing a segue to the group's discussion. Please join us, and bring your friends!

Registration is required.

Week 7

South Africa’s fragile democracy

By Sean Jacobs

The African National Congress (ANC) party has governed South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994. But the party today suffers from popular frustration over official corruption and economic stagnation. It faces growing threats from both left and right opposition parties, even as intraparty divisions surface. Given America’s history of opportunistic engagement with Africa, there are few prospects for a closer relationship between the two countries. Meanwhile, a weaker ANC could lead to political fragmentation in this relatively new democracy.
