World Events Discussion Group 2 focuses exclusively on current world events*** and related background issues of a global nature. Members seek to broaden their knowledge and understanding about events and trends in all regions of the world. This takes place in a friendly, informal atmosphere.

Each member volunteers twice a year to make a longer presentation (30 minutes) during the first half of the meeting. A recent world news event is selected, and the group is informed of the topic ahead of time by e-mail. Usually a couple of relevant articles or links and perhaps some questions for consideration are included. After the presentation, an open discussion is held. In the second half of the meeting, three short presentations (7 minutes each) on recent world events are given again followed by lively discussion.

Recent topics explored include:

  • The United Nations Security Council
  • Venezuela
  • The World Economic Forum
  • Somalia
  • Globalism vs Nationalism
  • Elections in Brazil
  • Special Counsel Investigation of the Russian government's efforts to interfere in the US 2016 presidential election
  •  Crimea
  • Interpol
  • The Palestinians
