About CFR

Support CFR

The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has been the leading independent foreign policy organization in the United States since its founding in 1921. In this era defined by globalization, the need for CFR has never been greater. An integral part of the organization's mission is to serve as a resource to all those who seek to better understand the world and the foreign policy challenges facing the United States and other countries. Since its establishment, CFR has produced rigorous nonpartisan analysis and insight addressing current and emerging foreign policy issues. CFR's in-house think tank, award-winning website, outreach initiatives, and Foreign Affairs are only a few of the means through which the institution informs and facilitates dialogue, debate, and discussion of the highest order.
