Chatham House appoints CTI Digital

World leading independent policy institute Chatham House has appointed CTI Digital to provide expertise and support for the Royal Institute of International Affairs' in-house digital function.

One of the key digital strategies for Chatham House is to share research and knowledge with a wider public audience and the appointment will see the Manchester based agency working on supporting and developing the existing web applications.

Chatham House is also a significant user of Drupal, the open source software that is supported by a global community. Drupal software is continually being built upon by a global community, free of licence fees, allowing for Chatham House’s digital development, keeping the Institute up-to-date on new legislation and enabling compliance to accessibility standards and GDPR.

Paul Johnson, Drupal director at CTI, said: “We strive to work with organisations that make a positive impact on society and I can think of few better examples than the work done by Chatham House. They join growing numbers of global organisations making long-term investments in Drupal. We are delighted to be a big part of that.”

Josie Tree, head of digital strategy and development at Chatham House, added: “Building our global public audience and sharing our expertise and knowledge with influential people, policy-makers and world leaders has long been a key aspect of our digital strategy. Our new digital partnership with CTI Digital will bring us invaluable expertise in achieving that, and help us remain at the forefront in digital communications.”

CTI Digital counts a number of not-for-profit organisations as clients, including War Child UK, The British Council and The Royal College of Occupational Therapists.
