Founded in 1921, CFR carries out its mission by maintaining a diverse membership, with special programs to promote interest and develop expertise in the next generation of foreign policy leaders; con­ vening meetings at its headquarters in New York and in Washington, D.C., and other cities where se­ nior government officials, members of Congress, global leaders, and prominent thinkers come together with CFR members to discuss and debate major international issues; sup­ porting a Studies Program that fosters in­ de­ pen­ dent research, enabling CFR scholars to produce articles, reports, and books and hold round­ tables that analyze foreign policy issues and make concrete policy rec­ ommendations; publishing Foreign Affairs, the preeminent journal on international affairs and U.S. foreign policy; sponsoring In­ de­ pen­ dent Task Forces that produce reports with both findings and policy prescrip­ tions on the most impor­ tant foreign policy topics; and providing up-­ to-­ date information and analy­ sis about world events and American foreign policy on its website, www​.­cfr​.­org.
