And the Council's transition to a truly digital think tank has accelerated, to provide engaging digital experiences and content for our members and audiences in Chicago and around the world.

Investments in digital capabilities have made it possible for us to continue exploring rapid global change, what it means, and how it affects you and your life.

We are:

  • Addressing the most important questions facing our world and why they matter
  • Offering you analysis that goes beyond the news and the headlines
  • Providing opportunities for you to engage and interact, from anywhere in the world, with the thought leaders shaping global affairs

This is not a temporary solution to the greatest challenge of our time. It is the future of the Council. Digital experiences will complement our in-person convenings well into our second century. And it is possible because of support from you, our members, and donors—our community that believes access to fact-based and balanced views on global issues helps to ensure effective US engagement and supports a more inclusive, equitable, and secure world.

This is your Chicago Council on Global Affairs.
