Kelley Drye’s Maliha Khan Elected to Council on Foreign Relations

Kelley Drye Associate Maliha Khan has been elected as a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). CFR’s Stephen M. Kellen Term Member Program, established to cultivate the next generation of foreign policy leaders, encourages promising young individuals from diverse backgrounds to engage in a sustained conversation on international affairs and U.S. foreign policy.

Each year, a new class of members between the ages of 30 and 36 is elected to serve a five-year term. The program allows these younger members to interact with seasoned foreign policy experts and participate in a wide variety of events designed especially for them. In addition to taking part in a full range of CFR activities, term members enjoy an array of special events with high-profile speakers, including an annual Term Member Conference, roundtables, workshops, trips to financial and government institutions across the country, and a week-long study trip abroad every two years.

Maliha was nominated by Ambassador Tom McDonald, a life member of CFR, who served as U.S. Ambassador to Zimbabwe during the Clinton administration, and alongside whom she serves on the board of Muslims for Progressive Values, an international non-profit organization.

An Associate in Kelley Drye’s International Trade practice, Maliha represents clients in various customs and trade remedy proceedings, including antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) investigations and reviews before the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. International Trade Commission, and appeals before the U.S. Court of International Trade. Maliha joined Kelley Drye after her time at the Commerce Department, where she enforced U.S. trade laws.

Maliha looks forward to serving as a CFR member. I hope to interact with some of the world’s most respected thought leaders, particularly on matters impacting trade, and make new connections among CFR’s diverse membership.”

Maliha received her JD and MA in International Affairs at American University and undergraduate degrees in finance and political science from Pace University.
