Rules

Aiming at promoting open and free discussions, ETT has adopted the Chatham House Rule. This rule is now used throughout the world as an aid to the free discussion of sensitive issues. It provides a way for speakers to openly discuss their views in private while allowing the topic and nature of the debate to be made public and contribute to a broader conversation.

The Chatham House Rule reads as follows:

When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed.

In applying the above Rule, all the ETT meetings (including online), events and discussions:

  • will be conducted ‘on the record’ with the Rule occasionally invoked in relevant cases. In cases where the Rule is not considered sufficiently strict, an event may be held ‘off the record’.
  • the use of social media to disseminate information on or during the event is permitted as long as the person tweeting or messaging reports only on what was said at an event and does not identify – directly or indirectly – the speaker or another participant. 
  • the dissemination of the information after the event must be done in a way to not identify, either explicitly or implicitly, the identity of the persons. 
  • the list of participants should not be circulated beyond those participating in the meeting.
  •  ETT reserves the right to take disciplinary action against a member or guest who breaks the above rules.
