Trilateral Commission

An informal group of 300 to 400 people from North America, Europe, and East Asia who meet several times a year to discuss public policy with an eye toward promoting globalization and integration. Membership is by invitation and current government officials are excluded from membership. However, many members go on to become high political executives. The Trilateral Commission has been controversial throughout its history, with some accusing it of promoting a one-world government. It was established in 1973 by David Rockefeller. See also: Council on Foreign Relations.
