About Chatham House Forums
Each Chatham House Forum considers a question around an important contemporary debate in international affairs.
An expert speaker will offer a polemic in response – providing their answer to this question and outlining the key arguments that have convinced them of their position. The audience then have the chance to query and challenge the speaker’s views in a Q&A session during the second half of the event.
Each event will be followed by a reception with the speaker, allowing attendees to continue the conversation.
