Council on Foreign Relations Briefing Request Form
The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is pleased to offer a limited number of in-person briefings each year in our New York headquarters and Washington, DC, offices. The purpose is to introduce participants to CFR’s work and resources and to foster a stimulating exchange between participants and CFR fellows and staff.

The categories of briefings are as follows:

• Briefing with a CFR fellow or Foreign Affairs editor on a substantive issue (1 hour)
• Institutional briefing with a CFR staff member on the organization and its work (1 hour)

A fifteen-minute overview of employment opportunities from the CFR Human Resources department may be added to any briefing.

Please note that we require a minimum of twenty participants and at least one-month notice prior to the desired briefing date to arrange your visit. Briefings are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis and are subject to building and fellow availability. Due to the volume of requests we receive, briefings are limited to once annually per institution and are not held the months of July and August. All participants will need to fill out a survey on their familiarity with CFR before the briefing takes place, and provide their names and email addresses.

Kindly note that this event may be photographed and filmed. The Council on Foreign Relations retains the right to use the resulting images, audio, and video, which may be edited at CFR’s discretion, for promotional purposes.
