Council on Foreign Relations logo

Foreign Affairs is published by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). It 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. Its goal is to start a conversation in this country about the need for Americans to better understand the world.
