The American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC) is an American conservative[2] non-profit U.S. foreign policy think tank operating in Washington, D.C., since 1982. Its foreign and defense policy specialists provide information to members of US Congress, the Executive Branch, and the US policymaking community, as well as world leaders outside the US (particularly in the former USSR).

In addition, AFPC publishes strategic reports and other reports monitoring the policy progress of other countries from a conservative standpoint (particularly Russia, China, countries in the Middle East and in Asia). Common topics include security (missile defense, arms control, energy security, espionage) as well as the ongoing status of democracy and market economies in countries of interest.
