Welcome to the World Affairs Council of Rhode Island 

We are an 80 year old institution focused on giving our members enlightenment, education, and a forum for exchanging ideas and opinions about issues that transcend our borders.

Our members meet to interact and socialize with other globally curious people, attend interactive presentations featuring experts from around the world, and participate in the national debate on global issues that matter to all of us. 

The issues we explore are as diverse as our membership, and we would welcome you as a guest at one of our upcoming events.
