The International Law Programme seeks support from organizations which recognize the importance of independent and rigorously objective policy-focused research on critical issues concerning the impact of public international law.

The International Law Programme funds its activities through a combination of project grants from private foundations and government departments; event sponsorship; fellowship support; and discretionary donations from corporate sponsors.

All research programmes and staff adhere to the Chatham House Principles for Independent Research and Convening.  For further information on Chatham House’s overall funding, please visit the Our Funding pages.
