Rami George Khouri, director of the Institute for Public Policy, American University of Beirut, Lebanon, will lecture on, "Middle East Realignment," as a part of the Great Decisions Lecture Series on Wednesday, April 18, at 7:30 p.m. at the Fort Howard Theater at the F. K. Bemis International Center on the St. Norbert College campus.

Khouri is an internationally syndicated columnist, who regularly appears on NPR, CNN, and BBC. His years of experience as a journalist covering the
Middle East make him an ideal speaker for this topic.

Great Decisions is a nationwide program meant to bring together local, regional and national experts in an eight-week lecture series discussing international issues of interest to the community. St. Norbert College is hosting the public event for its 30th year in northeastern Wisconsin.

Topics for the series are selected by the Foreign Policy Association of America and are intended to provide a local forum for discussion on current political and economic issues of the day. The speakers are selected by participating colleges and universities. St. Norbert College is one of only two schools in Wisconsin that present the entire series. (UW-Milwaukee is the other.)

Admission to individual sessions is $5 at the door, and briefing books are available for $15. The briefing book includes background information on the lecture topics and access to the association's website, www.fpa.org, for resources, guides to topics and online discussion forums.
