The World Affairs Council of Houston is a forum where citizens, world leaders, policy makers and scholars come to meet, exchange ideas, and inspire action. With over 5,000 members, we are one of the largest and most successful public institutions in the nation. We are a diverse network of students, citizens, and community leaders who share a passion for international affairs and a commitment to education.
The World Affairs Council of Houston is a nonpartisan organization that is committed to free and fair discussion. The ideas and views presented by its featured speakers are their own and are not necessarily held by the Council, its staff, or its affiliates.
The Council presents speakers that it has found contribute insightful perspectives on global affairs. The Council encourages its members to conduct additional and varied research to further their understanding of these topics and arrive at their own conclusions.
