Chatham House

Have you ever wondered how Chatham House researchers approach the big ideas that become research? Do you enjoy meeting other Chatham House members and engaging with questions that open your mind?

‘Thinking Out Loud’ is a new event series from Chatham House which invites a group of members to a live and unscripted discussion with a Chatham House researcher. This in-person event is a way to think out loud to help shape ideas for future research.

Armida van Rij, research fellow with the International Security programme at Chatham House, poses key questions about NATO:

  • What is NATO’s role in addressing emerging security threats such as climate-related security threats, economic security issues and attacks on critical national infrastructure, space assets and telecommunications assets?
  • How can NATO protect vulnerable partners from Russia? 
  • How should NATO manage its relationship with China?
  • How can NATO ensure cohesion among its member states?

As with all member events, questions from the audience drive the conversation.
