Deliberative Dialogue on American Foreign Policy

Back to all events

Monroe A
11:00 am - 12:15 pm

The Democracy Commitment at MCC will hold a campus-wide deliberative dialogue on American foreign policy on March 16 from 11am-1215 pm in Monroe A on the Brighton Campus.

Deliberative dialogues are unique opportunities for collaborative thinking about pressing public issues. Because each dialogue takes the form of deliberation, attendees drive the conversation in small groups facilitated by trained moderators. Deliberation is unlike panel discussions or debates. It is highly participatory, egalitarian, and non-adversarial. The foundation of each dialogue is an issue guide. These guides offer an opportunity to explore an issue critically and discuss alternative action steps while keeping our values at the center of the conversation. If you would like an advance copy of an issue guide or have questions, please email Joe Scanlon (

America's International Relations: What Obligations Do We Have to the International Community?

3/16/23, 11am to 1215 pm, Monroe A (Brighton Campus)

While there is disagreement over America's role in the world, recent events like COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine have renewed our thinking about America's obligations to the international community. Join us as we deliberate over options that emphasize prioritizing domestic politics, asserting our power to address global problems, and the need to cooperate with other states and international organizations. This event is free and open to the public. Please register in advance at
