Council of Foreign Relations

The Council of Foreign Relations (CFR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, independent organization and think tank dedicated to being a nonpartisan authority on foreign policy issues. CFR’s website and publications are perceived by U.S. audiences to be timely, trusted sources of analysis and context on international events. Founded in 1921, CFR members include prominent figures in the intelligence and foreign policy community. The organization holds several meetings throughout the year, typically held in their New York or Washington, D.C., offices. These meetings often feature a panel of experts or single speakers with a moderator and may also include debate of the discussion topic. Each meeting provides the audience with an opportunity to interact with the panel or speakers through a question-and-answer session.
