Opportunities were provided throughout the day for delegates to share information, exchange views and network with colleagues who engage in similar or complementary areas of expertise.  The Chatham House Rule* were applied at this conference, and it was therefore a ‘closed’ conference.

*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". The world-famous Chatham House Rule may be invoked at meetings to encourage openness and the sharing of information. See: http://www.chathamhouse.org.uk/about/chathamhouserule/
