The programme funds its activities through a combination of project grants from government departments and private foundations; 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.
