The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is a nonprofit, 4900 member think tank specializing in U.S. foreign policy and international affairs. Its membership has included senior politicians, more than a dozen Secretaries of State, CIA directors, bankers, lawyers, professors, and senior media figures. The CFR promotes globalization, free trade, reducing financial regulations on transnational corporations, and economic consolidation into regional blocs such as NAFTA or the European Union, and develops policy recommendations that reflect these goals
The CFR meetings convene government officials, global business leaders and prominent members of the intelligence/foreign-policy community to discuss international issues. CFR runs the think tank “David Rockefeller Studies Program”, which influences foreign policy by making recommendations to the presidential administration and diplomatic community, testifying before Congress, interacting with the media, and publishing on foreign policy issues.
Professor Mearsheimer has just been to Berlin, where he spoke at an event. He gave two important interviews.
