Advancing public dialogue on foreign relations since 1938


Welcome to the Louisville Committee on Foreign Relations (LCFR) website. Since 1938, the LCFR has been working to help advance public dialogue on foreign relations. Our members are drawn from the highest levels of the diplomatic, academic, political, military and scientific communities.

The mission of the Louisville Committee on Foreign Relations is to promote a high-level, non-partisan dialogue on American foreign policy and foreign affairs in the Louisville metropolitan region. The LCFR seeks to promote a more informed foreign policy by bridging the divide between broader public opinion and the established foreign policy making community.
