Columbia International Affairs Online: Policy Briefs

Chatham House


Chatham House has been the home of the Royal Institute of Institute of International Affairs for over eight decades. Our mission is to be world-leading source of independent analysis, informed debate and influential ideas on how to build a prosperous and secure world for all.

Chatham House pursues its mission:

Founded in 1920 and based in St James's Square in London, Chatham House celebrated the 80th anniversary of the granting of its Royal Charter in 2006. The Chatham House Rule, famous worldwide for facilitating free speech and confidentiality at meetings, originated here.
