The American Assembly, a national, non-partisan public affairs forum, illuminates issues of public policy by commissioning and issuing research and publications and sponsoring meetings.

The American Assembly's projects bring together leading authorities representing a broad spectrum of views and interests. American Assembly reports and other publications are used by government, community, civic leaders and public officials. American Assembly topics concern not only domestic and foreign policy, but also issues that range from arts and culture, philanthropy, and health, to business, economy, education, law, race, religion and security. Founded by Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1950, The American Assembly is affiliated with Columbia University
