Events Each year Chatham House hosts some 100 public meetings for its members and about 20 major one- or two-day conferences enabling world leaders and experts to share their views and engage in discussion. A large number of these speeches are recorded. Chatham Houses Work [We are]... a melting pot that brings together people and organisations with an interest in international affairs. We provide an independent forum in which academia, business, diplomats, the media, NGOs, politicians, policy makers and researchers can interact in an open and impartial environment. The widespread recognition of the Chatham House Rule as a byword for free and frank debate is a reflection of our unique and non- aligned perspective.
