The Foreign Policy Association (FPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to inspiring the American public to learn more about the world. Founded in 1918, FPA provides independent publications, programs and forums to increase public awareness of, and foster popular participation in, matters relating to those policy issues.

In his speech Kasparov sets out the aggressive tone in his introductory remarks: "History teaches us they are ideas worth fighting for and worth dying for. The current Kremlin regime under Vladimir Putin is in some ways a new and difficult cancer to diagnose and treat. But it is not completely resistant yet and I hope we may yet force it into remission, or cut it out entirely, without killing the patient."
