Dialogue promotes peace and prosperity through

knowledge and understanding.

Today our world with all of its promise also confronts unprecedented challenges. If not properly addressed, many of these challenges devolve into conflict. Dialogue with foreign leaders, understanding the international business goals of the US and other countries, and recognizing the role that each country plays in both international affairs and international business is at the heart of what ACIR offers those who are interested in international relations, international business, world affairs, and U.S. foreign and security challenges. Involvement with and support of ACIR provides each of us an opportunity to make a contribution to the advancement of peace and prosperity through knowledge and understanding.
