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.


The CFR Academic Outreach Initiative provides a forum for educators and students to interact with CFR experts and join the debate on foreign policy. The purpose is to foster a deeper understanding of international relations and the role of the United States in the world. Programs include the Academic Conference Call Series; live streaming of CFR meetings; workshops for college and university presidents and deans, professors, and high school teachers; briefings for students; exhibitions and events at conferences across the country; and disseminating CFR print and multimedia resources for teaching and learning about global issues.
