About Chatham House

Based in St James’s Square, London, Chatham House has long been regarded as one of the world’s premier policy institutes on international affairs. Since its creation in 1920, it has been a source of independent analysis and informed debate, promoting open as well as confidential discussions about significant developments in the global arena. Its teams of researchers produce independent and rigorous analysis of global, regional and country-specific challenges and the centre has been voted the No 1 think tank outside the United States for the past four consecutive years by the Global “Go-To Think Tanks” survey.
