* In 2012, FPRI established a Princeton Committee to bring experts and policymakers in foreign affairs together with individuals who seek a deeper understanding of the complex issues confronting us today. The format for these briefings, to be held in Princeton, is an intimate, salon-like setting in which participants may interact and exchange views with experts to a degree and depth not attainable in public forums. The Princeton Committee is directed by John R. Haines, trustee of the Foreign Policy Research Institute.
