Chatham House rule


The Chatham House Rule originated at Chatham House in London, UK with the aim of providing anonymity to speakers and to encourage openness and the sharing of information. It is now used throughout the world as an aid to free discussion. Meetings do not have to take place at Chatham House, or be organized by Chatham House, to be held under the Rule.

For more information see the Chatham House website.
On this site you will find more explanations, translations, frequently asked questions and more.

Members of the press will be required to sign a declaration of acceptance at registration.
An example is downloadable in the press section of this website.
