Launched in November 2014 by Chatham House’s patron HM The Queen, the Academy offers potential and established leaders from around the world the opportunity to spend up to twelve months as Academy fellows. Based in the unique and neutral venue of Chatham House, the Academy builds on the institute’s international reputation for independent thinking, cutting-edge research and informed debate. It also takes advantage of Chatham House’s location in the heart of London, one of the world’s most vibrant and global cities.
