The Chatham House Rule

I have had the good fortune to participate in some very interesting meetings during the week, with some very interesting people and in interesting places.

This led me to bring upThe Chatham House Rule - a concept that I hadn't encountered before I started studying at the Department of War Studies. It is basically a gentleman agreement not to relate any of the interesting knowledge you get from all those interesting meetings. It might not really be of interest to other academic meetings, but I could imagine that a lot of spindoctors in Denmark would have liked the rules to apply when they spill their beans in the Copenhagen night-life...
