About the National Committee on American Foreign Policy:
The National Committee on American Foreign Policy (NCAFP) was founded in 1974 by Professor Hans J. Morgenthau, Dr. George D. Schwab and others to serve as a nonprofit, independent foreign policy think tank to help shape U.S. foreign policy within the framework of political realism. It seeks to identify and to allay the gravest challenges to U.S. and global security.
The Forum on Asia-Pacific Security (FAPS) hosts off-the-record conferences between Asian and American diplomats, former diplomats, and scholars.
