Chatham House

Chatham House is a world-leading policy institute, founded in 1920, and based in London with a mission to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world. Our research is solutions-focused and structured around three themes to achieve peaceful thriving societies; sustainable and equitable growth; and accountable inclusive governance. The role of technology and the rapidly changing nature of geopolitics, including the impact of the coronavirus pandemic, are prominent in all aspects of our current work.

Debate and dialogue, rigorous and independent analysis and new ideas underpin all Chatham House’s activities and outputs, and innovation lies at the heart of the organization and our approach to our work. In recent years new initiatives include the creation of a media studio, a Simulation Centre and, most recently, a CoLab. All are working spaces with a high-tech backbone aimed at driving new ways of working and stress-testing policies and seeking solutions for policy makers and others.

Our policy solutions are grounded in the following core principles: the rule of law; representative and accountable government with effective separation of powers; open and well-regulated markets; a vibrant media and civil society that enables informed public debate; and a cooperative approach to international affairs based on the concept of an international society.

It’s one hundred years since the founding of the institute and as Sir David Attenborough said when accepting the 2019 Chatham House Prize, ‘international problems have never been more international, more crucial and more pressing than they are today’.
