We at the Santa Fe Council on International Relations connect New Mexico and the world by engaging and educating people to become responsible global citizens. For CIR, “global citizen” captures many ideas, but above all, a global citizen promotes a world of gender equality, sustainable economic growth, human rights, environmental stewardship, peaceful conflict resolution, and religious and cultural diversity.

We promote an in-depth understanding of globalization and US foreign policy through our talks and panels and lectures.

We welcome over 250 international visitors every year to northern New Mexico, plugging them into our community. Find out who’s coming to town right here!!

We educate the next generation with global awareness and competencies.

We connect ideas with action, through a membership of 500 former ambassadors, foreign service officers, executives, and folks looking for expertise and insight into these complex times.
