I believe that the best way to tell "who's who" in the CFR is to see who is appointed to their Task Forces. See link for this

They do not make a habit of appointing "outsiders" to their Task Forces.

Gary Samore,

Director of Studies,
and Maurice R.
Greenberg Chair

Welcome to the Council on Foreign Relations’ David Rockefeller Studies Program. We are the Council’s “think tank.” We are an important part of the Council’s mission to produce and disseminate ideas so that individual and corporate members, as well as policymakers, journalists, students, and interested citizens in the United States and other countries, can better understand the world and the foreign policy choices facing the United States and other governments. We do that by thinking, writing, and speaking about a broad range of foreign policy issues.

The Studies Program is home to more than forty scholars, called fellows. Taken together, their expertise covers nearly every issue related to international relations. Some fellows are experts on specific countries such as China and Egypt or geographical regions like Europe and Latin America. Other fellows are experts on functional topics such as global health, homeland security, international finance, nuclear proliferation, and trade. Fellows write books, articles, and newspaper op-eds on issues in their areas of expertise. They also share their expertise with local, regional, national, and international media, and they are frequently called upon by government policymakers for advice.

The Studies Program has two interdisciplinary centers. The Maurice R. Greenberg Center for Geoeconomic Studies works to promote a better understanding among policymakers, educators, and the interested public of how economic and political forces interact to influence world affairs. The Center for Preventive Action works to prevent, defuse, or resolve deadly conflicts around the world by addressing the systemic and structural causes of discrimination, disenchantment, and political turmoil that are likely to provoke armed conflict. Both centers seek to accomplish their goals by producing and disseminating original research; bringing policymakers, experts, and journalists together to address critical issues; and informing the broader public about important issues through media interviews and public speaking.

I hope you enjoy the site and find the information you need. You can search our current and past projects by region or functional topic. You can also find a list of our current fellows with links to their biographical information and publications. If you have any questions about the Studies Program and our part of, please contact my office. You can find our contact information on the lower right-hand side of each Studies page.
