About AMF

In 2003, former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright founded the Aspen Ministers Forum (AMF) to strengthen diplomatic ties between the U.S. and Europe. In response to the growing need for enhanced dialogue and trust across the globe, the group quickly evolved to embrace a broader mission and membership. Since the Forum’s inception, it has established itself as a leading platform for nonpartisan dialogue, aimed at addressing and developing concrete policy recommendations to build upon and improve the work of key international institutions.

You can find a historical overview of the Aspen Ministers Forum in the feature piece “Albright’s Dream Team” in the Summer 2012 issue of The Aspen Idea.
