Become a Chatham House member and join a diverse and influential network of individuals and organizations who take a proactive interest in global affairs and value opportunities to share, debate and develop ideas on critical international issues.

Ever since it was founded in 1920, Chatham House has relied on its members, both individuals and institutions, to support its mission, especially its role as a platform for informed debate on the most pressing issues in international affairs.

Members are drawn from the worlds of business, diplomacy, academia, politics, the media and civil society, as well as a growing body of students.

They play an essential role in questioning and challenging world leaders and other speakers when they visit Chatham House.

While the majority are UK-based, overseas members (based in more than 75 countries) form an increasingly significant proportion of the total. 

Contributions from our members – through their subscriptions and participation in debate with speakers – play an integral role in sustaining the independence of Chatham House.
