We aim to become better informed and understand more deeply what is happening in the world by exchanging knowledge and opinions. We are not topic experts but members bring an interesting topic for the group to explore through a general discussion. Every so often a member researches a significant topic and circulates a brief background paper as a basis for a longer discussion. We have animated discussions but aim to remain calm and friendly, respecting and valuing differences of opinion and avoiding party politics.
Topics coming up in the autumn include trade and drug policy.
