About the at-large

The at-large is the Royal Institute’s platform for dialogue that provides the ideas and opinions of our analysts on foreign policy and action abroad and, indeed, on overall projection and international relations in general. The content of this blog is also linked to the Institute’s research, publications and activities and its participation in global networks with other think tanks. Authors and readers, fully identified as such, will be part of a community of users whose interaction and dialogue are moderated by community standards, participation guidelines and commentary policy.

How does the community interact?

There are simple guidelines that we expect from all participants in the community areas of the at-large to follow. These apply to the entire blog, while moderation decisions are also influenced by the context in which comments are made.

  • Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
  • Persistent misrepresentations by the at-large
  • We will consider removing any content that others may find extremely offensive or threatening.
  • We will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia or other forms of hate speech, or contributions that could be interpreted as such.
