    Atlantic Partnership is not a membership organisation, does not charge any fees for participation in its events or remunerate its speakers. Its resources are correspondingly modest. But within them it aims to bring together diverse audiences whom it believes will benefit from the opportunity to listen and debate with its invited speakers and apply the lessons learned to their own particular challenges in the broad areas of public policy and international relations. Atlantic Partnership (whose registered name is the Atlantic Education Project) is a registered charity in England and Wales. It cooperates closely with its sister organisation, Friends of Atlantic Partnership Inc, an American not-for-profit (501/C/3) organisation, exchanging information and passing on experiences, while retaining its independence and separate governance.
