The David Rockefeller Studies Program—CFR's think tank—analyzes pressing global challenges and offers actionable steps that policymakers and citizens can take to address them. The more than eighty full-time and adjunct fellows in Studies cover all the world’s major regions and significant foreign policy issues. In addition to producing books, articles, op-eds, blogs, podcasts, and interactives, the Studies Program administers twelve fellowship programs.
