Value for supporters

The Russia and Eurasia Programme offers the opportunity to support leading independent research addressing the domestic and international politics of Russia and the independent states of Eastern Europe, the South Caucasus and Central Asia. The programme brings together the best thinking on the changing dynamics of these countries, as well as their implications for the West and the wider world.

Chatham House’s unparalleled convening power allows us to attract the most influential figures from and the best analysts on the region. The programme holds approximately 50 expert roundtables each year, with speakers ranging from heads of state, foreign ministers and opposition figures to political scientists, economists and energy specialists. Meetings are usually small and invitation-only, involving presentations by visiting speakers or in-house researchers followed by questions and open discussion with invited experts. Often held under the Chatham House Rule to encourage free and frank exchange, the roundtables provide an invaluable resource for information from the most significant experts and policymakers from and on the region.
