RUSI's conferences, lectures and other events benefit not only from the presentation of the speakers but also from the subsequent discussion. Most RUSI events are subject to the 'RUSI Rule' unless otherwise stated. 

The RUSI Rule means that:

All speeches and prepared remarks are ‘on the record’ and are attributable to the individual and the event organised by the Royal United Services Institute.

All comments made in response to questions (i.e., the non‐prepared remarks) are neither attributable to the individual, nor to the event.

Those wishing to quote any remark that is un-attributable by these rules, should seek the permission of the speaker of those specific remarks.
