Chatham House Rules

This was brought to mind during planning for a meeting, I researched the background of the 'Chatham house rules', which we used at times when working with external experts:  From the Wikipedia:

" ... The Chatham House Rule or rules is a system for holding debates and discussion panels on controversial issues, named after the headquarters of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (situated in St James's Square, London), also known as Chatham House, where the rule originated in June 1927.

At a meeting held under the Chatham House Rule, anyone who comes to the meeting is free to use information from the discussion, but is not allowed to reveal who made any comment. It is designed to increase openness of discussion.  ... "
