7th week marks our club’s quarterly “Foreign Policy Week”. It’s easy to get caught up in all the domestic affairs, especially given the 2016 Presidential Race, but it’s important to remind ourselves that there’s a big wide world out there (wrought with political races in countries whose nuances we’ll never truly understand).
Our incredible team of writers have brought you a week’s worth of good reading, especially if you’ve happened to confine your political worldview to the mighty states of Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina.
This week, we’ll start by visiting our neighbors to the Great North – Canada. We’ll then cross the Pacific to the our democratic allies across the straight, Taiwan. An update in Israel will get us over the hump, and we’ll round the week by looking at Scotland and Japan.
