As we seek to educate leaders and policymakers about how to meet the global challenges and opportunities of the 21st century, the Foreign Policy Initiative (FPI) conducts briefings for candidates of both political parties, as well as sitting members of Congress and their staff of both political parties.

FPI briefings bring the experience and expertise of Washington’s leading foreign policy thinkers to current and aspiring members of Congress. The sessions, which can range from an hour to a half-day, are personally tailored to the interests of those being briefed. FPI will make available experts on the major foreign policy challenges facing the United States including topics such as Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, China, and Russia, among other issues. We are prepared to brief candidates and members of Congress on critical issues ranging from the War on Terror to transatlantic relations and from the defense budget to democracy and human rights.

In conjunction with our briefings, we have developed Foreign Policy 2010, (updated October 28, 2010) a briefing book available on the FPI website at This document pulls together articles and op-eds from leading thinkers in each of the key foreign policy issue areas. FPI will be updating the briefing book on a regular basis throughout 2010.  To suggest additional articles or content for the briefing book, please email

To schedule a briefing, please contact Rachel Hoff at or (202) 296-3322.
