The David Rockefeller Studies Program


CFR's "think tank" - comprises more than seventy full-time, part-time, and visiting scholars and practitioners, called fellows. They hail from varied backgrounds, including academia, government, the media, and the private sector, and provide analysis on the significant issues shaping today's global agenda. Fellows monitor developments in the major regions and countries around the world and study topics such as defense policy, nuclear proliferation, terrorism, global governance, energy, trade, international economics and finance, climate change, development, global health, and cyber and digital policy.


Foreign Affairs has long been America's leading forum for serious discussion of foreign policy and international affairs. It presents clear thinking by knowledgeable observers on important issues, written to be read with ease and pleasure by professionals and general readers alike. Reflecting the same commitment to nonpartisanship as the Council itself, Foreign Affairs identifies with no one school of thought and encourages a wide range of debate in its pages to assist readers in thinking for themselves about America's role in the world.


CFR's Meetings Programs provide a nonpartisan forum for informed policy debate for CFR members together with policymakers, world leaders, academic experts, and prominent thinkers. With programming in New York, Washington, D.C., and throughout the country, CFR's Meetings Programs feature a wide range of speakers and viewpoints to help participants to better understand the pressing foreign policy issues of the day.
