The Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) and the Council on Foreign Relations in the UK are comprised of a group of elites who although unaccountable shape Britain’s foreign policy.


The post-1945 world order, which was marked by closeness between Britain and the United States, was mainly constructed by Think Tanks and Power in Foreign Policy involving intellectual and political forces who developed a resilient Anglo-American alliance during the World War II.

Chatham House and the Council on Foreign Relations were vital in Britain’s shift from imperialism to its current pro-US orientation. They also helped the US shift from isolationism to globalism.

Experts believe well-organized and well-connected Think Tanks have the potential to help change the world through their numerous transatlantic interconnections both socially, politically and economically.

Chatham House, as one of those Think Tanks, which is partly run by the British foreign spying apparatus MI6, urges a dramatic overhaul of the Foreign Office’s London HQ to turn it into something that looks a lot more like the Cabinet Office so that it can finally be the department for global issues.

Think Tank’s director Robin Niblett has been advising the coalition government since entering office that it should put a distinctive foreign policy into action.

Chatham House regularly conducts surveys to test the government’s popularity in terms of policies and impact. On the issue of the UK’s economic interests, for example, a majority of so-called ‘opinion-formers’ and the public believed the government should have stronger relations with the world’s emerging economies, according to Chatham House.

However, many analysts believe Chatham house is the privatized Mafia state version of the Foreign Office, which is far better resourced of course. They say “as the UK is dying Chatham House is growing.”

Chatham House hosts debates and offers research and ideas to address the growing number of challenges that transcend borders and affect governments and societies today.

To save face in terms of neutrality, Chatham House hosts meetings about the influence of Zionist lobbies in the UK and the US for an instance.

It was in Chatham House that two prominent professors of Harvard University warned against the role Israeli pressure groups play in the US government’s anti-Iranian policies.

They told the Think Tank that policies adopted under Zionist lobbies’ influence fuel security problems and increase hate of the US regime around the world.

Chatham House has been acting as an influential arm of the UK government in target countries through making links with the countries’ research and study centers to implement Britain’s imperialistic policies.

As for the Islamic Republic of Iran, Chatham House advised the UK government to fill the gap created by the US and Israel’s non-presence to act as intelligence arm of those countries in Iran.

The Think Tank told the British Foreign Office to support certain Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) inside Iran to exploit their potentials to mobilize various social layers for proper conditions.

During the last presidential elections in Iran, an 18-point instruction was issued by the UK government, presumably drafted by the Chatham House, instructing then British diplomats to activate their potentials and make contacts with political parties to gather intelligence for carrying out destructive measures.

Chatham House instructed the British Foreign Policy apparatus to devise a plan based on three principals to enforce change in target countries, including A: making a democracy which is in line with the West’s objectives and interests, B: Creating domestic insecurities and bolstering differences to make the system internally confused, and C: to question the target countries’ sovereignty.

Born from the ashes of war-ravaged Europe following the Great War, the idea for the Royal Institute of International Affairs was forged at an informal session during the 1919 Paris peace conference.

The Institute was formalized the next year, first as the British Institute of International Affairs, and then, after receiving its Royal Charter, as the Royal Institute of International Affairs.

The group became synonymous with Chatham House, its headquarters in St. James’ Square, London, and is widely recognized among foreign policy experts as the most influential think tank in the world.

The Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House) controls British intelligence. It uses the intelligence agencies to help plan and carry out psyco-political operations focused on different groups around the world to cause conflict, control public opinion and increase corporate member profits.
