CFR is truly a national organization, with a plurality of its membership based outside of New York and Washington, DC. The National Program provides a forum for these members across the country and around the world to discuss pressing foreign policy issues and contribute to CFR’s research.
CFR is dedicated to promoting an informed citizenry by making CFR’s independent, nonpartisan analysis and commentary on international relations and the role of the United States in the world accessible to all. Explore the initiatives and programs below for the best way to connect with CFR’s experts, resources, and communities.
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an independent, nonpartisan membership organization, think tank, and publisher dedicated to being a resource for its members, government officials, business executives, journalists, educators and students, civic and religious leaders, and other interested citizens in order to help them better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other countries. Founded in 1921, CFR takes no institutional positions on matters of policy. Our goal is to start a conversation in this country about the need for Americans to better understand the world.
