About the Studies Program

The Council on Foreign Relations' David Rockefeller Studies Program—CFR's "think tank"—is home to more than seventy full-time, adjunct, and visiting scholars and practitioners (called "fellows"). Their expertise covers the major regions and significant issues shaping today's global agenda. CFR fellows contribute to the foreign policy debate by writing books, reports, articles, op-eds, and blogs as well as by holding discussions on the most important challenges facing the United States and the world. Learn more about CFR fellows.

The Studies Program's centers and programs cover the world's major regions—Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East—and address the predominant functional challenges confronting the United States and the world. Explore CFR's centers and programs.
