Our meeting will proceed under an adaptation of the Chatham House Rule:
Chatham House is one of the world’s leading organizations for the analysis of international issues. It is membership-based and aims to help individuals and organizations to be at the forefront of developments in an ever-changing and increasingly complex world.
The Chatham House Rule is sometimes invoked at meetings to encourage openness and the sharing of information.
The relevant portion of The Chatham House Rule reads as follows:
“WHEN A MEETING, OR PART THEREOF, IS HELD UNDER THE CHATHAM HOUSE RULE, PARTICIPANTS ARE FREE TO USE THE INFORMATION RECEIVED, BUT NEITHER THE IDENTITY NOR THE AFFILIATION OF THE SPEAKER(S), NOR THAT OF ANY OTHER PARTICIPANT, MAY BE REVEALED”.
Note: Our materials will disclose the full list of working group participants, and participants will have the opportunity to endorse any consensus statements issued through the working group process. But otherwise all meeting-related information and consensus statements will be offered without further attribution to any individual participants, and we ask participants to uphold this practice in their use of any meeting-related information.
