Through its Africa programme, Chatham House has established itself as a globally influential centre for independent policy research on Angola.

It offers a unique forum for individuals, organizations and policy-makers to exchange views from the spectrum of Angolan business, politics, academia, diaspora and civil society.

Founded in 1998, the Angola Forum at Chatham House - formerly known as the British Angola Forum (BAF) - was one of the first centres of expertise on Angolan affairs and international relations.

The forum was one of the first initiatives outside of Portuguese-speaking countries to critically engage with this complex and challenging country.
