The Madison Committee on Foreign Relations provides its members with an intimate, intellectual oasis where on-the-ground international experts and leading academics share their expertise and answer your questions.

We bring principals in current foreign affairs topics to Madison in a unique not-for-attribution format to foster an atmosphere of respect and an open dialog.

MCFR is dedicated to non-partisan, non-advocacy, open discussion of issues facing the United States and other nations.
