About the National Committee on American Foreign Policy:
The National Committee on American Foreign Policy (NCAFP) was founded in 1974 by Professor Hans J.

It seeks to identify and to allay the gravest challenges to U.S. and global security.
The NCAFP organizes educational and informational programs and conferences on foreign policy.
