Mission

The Boston Committee on Foreign Relations is a member organization established in 1946 in cooperation with the Council on Foreign Relations in New York, and currently affiliated with the American Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, DC. Its purpose is to encourage enlightened discussion of international affairs and U.S. foreign policy. It takes no policy positions and is open to members of all political views. The BCFR’s membership is drawn from the leadership ranks of the region’s business, financial, academic, and legal communities and from the local diplomatic corps.
