An initiative established by Chatham House to engage a more diverse audience with the institute's mission to help build a sustainably secure, prosperous and just world.

The St James's Roundtable revolves around a series of roundtable lunch events which are open by invitation to individuals with relevant experience and interests across a variety of backgrounds.

These roundtables offer a chance to engage guests in Chatham House debates and draw on fresh perspectives from individuals who are outside the institute's usual networks. 

Members of the Roundtable are invited to make a £2,500 annual donation to the institute, which not only supports the Roundtable's activities, but will also provide essential discretionary support to Chatham House.

This income underpins the institute's independence by helping it pursue a wide range of research without being beholden to a limited number of major funders.

Please contact Rosemary Hurford in the Donor Relations Team.
