Our Mission

At the National Interest Foundation, we are passionate about furthering the national interests of the United States through stronger understanding of foreign policy issues and diplomacy with countries around the world. Foreign Policy is crucial to the development of a nation and at NIF, we know countries can effectively and efficiently progress by maintaining positive relationships with their global neighbors.

As the world transitions to a new age of information, the U.S will need to develop a robust yet agile foreign policy – one that fits the reality of the Information Age. With rising forces of globalization, economic integration, and technological advancement, our nonpartisan organization wants to emphasize greater cooperation with our neighbors across the globe in better influencing the future of foreign policy.
