Chatham House is an independent policy institute based in London, whose mission is to help governments and societies build a sustainably secure, prosperous, and just world. This project creates an interactive model for experts and policymakers to visualize the complex international system in which nuclear weapons exist. The aim is to help experts and policymakers determine how specific policy decisions might have consequences (unintended or otherwise) on the nuclear regime. Chatham House draws on technology and analytic methodology that have never before been applied to the issue of nuclear weapons.

Based in London, Chatham House is an independent policy institute that engages governments, the private sector, and civil society in open debate and private discussions about significant developments in international affairs. Its Africa program is a center for policy research and debate aimed at improving policy outcomes for citizens in Africa. With this award, Chatham House Africa program staff and a range of Nigerian partners are conducting research on social norms, corruption, and behavior change in eight states and the Federal Capital Territory of Abuja in Nigeria. The outcome is a stronger evidence base that provides information on the impact of interventions to change behaviors and expectations around corrupt practices and galvanize collective action for greater accountability.

Founded in 1920, Chatham House engages governments, the private sector, civil society and its members in open debate and confidential discussion on the most significant developments in international affairs. This project constitutes the second phase of Chatham House's Cyber Security and Nuclear Security project, implemented with MacArthur Foundation support between 2013-2015. It builds on the policy recommendations that were put forward in the Chatham House report Cyber Security at Civil Nuclear Facilities: Understanding the Risks. This second phase, Cyber Security at Civil Nuclear Facilities: Addressing the risks and implementing the solutions, focuses on assisting industry in developing standards that can be used to measure best practice in mitigating cyber threats and developing training materials that can be used to educate professionals about cyber vulnerabilities in civil nuclear facilities. The project intends to tangibly reduce the cyber threat to civil nuclear infrastructure.

Founded in 1920, Chatham House's mission is to be a world-leading source of independent analysis, informed debate and influential ideas on how to build a prosperous and secure world.

It endeavors to achieve a more nuanced understanding of multi-power relationships, with a particular focus on the U.S., China, Japan and India. Funds will be used for partial staff salaries, travel to Asia and the United States, roundtables, and publications.
