The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is an influential United States foreign policy think tank.

In 2005, Inter Press Service News Agency described CFR as "the nation's most influential foreign-policy think tank".

In addition to influence from its many prominent members, the CFR meetings convene government officials, global business leaders and prominent members of the intelligence and foreign-policy community to discuss international issues. CFR publishes the bi-monthly journal Foreign Affairs, and runs the 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.

Controversies

Much of the funding comes from corporations, which receive various benefits, such as opportunities to hear distinguished speakers and private dinners and receptions with influential persons. Critics have seen the organization as lobbying for controversial globalist policies and as having undue influence.

"Of the forty-three(43) Council on Foreign Relations directors, twenty-eight(28) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 65%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented on the Council on Foreign Relations board of directors by a factor of 32.5 times(3,250 percent)."[1] "Of the fifty-five(55) Council on Foreign Relations think tank members, thirty-one(31) are Jews or have Jewish spouses. This is a numerical representation of 56%. Jews are approximately 2% of the U.S. population.* Therefore Jews are over-represented in the Council on Foreign Relations think tank by a factor of 28 times(2,800 percent)."[2]
