We operate in a trust environment


Please note that all applications to attend Institute’s events are reviewed by the CEO, who retains absolute discretion on whether individual applications are accepted. For some events, security clearance relevant to the country(ies) from which participants come will be a minimum condition.

Chatham House Rule

The Institute for Regional Security operates under the ‘Chatham House Rule’ for most of its events, especially diplomatic dialogues, Future Strategic Leaders Program sessions, and most academic workshops and seminars. We are proud of our ‘no-leak’ reputation for all events we have delivered since we were established.

When registering for an event we may ask you to check a declaration of confidentiality, with your understanding that your participation is dependent on the commitment to the Rule below:

I understand that the Chatham House Rule will apply to presentations and discussions at The Institute for Regional Security’s events. I acknowledge that whilst I may take away and repeat elsewhere the general content of discussions, I will not, under any circumstances, attribute specific remarks, views, or issues to any individual at the event. I agree to abide by both the letter and the spirit of this rule.
