Institute for Strategic Dialogue
The Institute for Strategic Dialogue brings together a range of the elite policy planning activites of Lord Weidenfeld. All but one of its trustees (Helena Kennedy) have connections with the banking and finance sector including with hedge funds. The Institute, however, focuses much of its activities on the question of Islam and its role in Western societies and on defence and intelligence matters. The Institute provides the home for a number of Weidenfeld's other initiatives, such as the Club of Three.

|Chatham House||A key organ of the UK Deep state|
|International Republican Institute|
|Omidyar Network||"A philanthropic investment firm"|
|Open Society Foundations||A NGO operating in more countries than McDonald's. It has the tendency to support politicians (at times through astroturfing) and activists that get branded as "extreme left" as its founder is billionaire and bane of the pound George Soros. This polarizing perspective causes the abnormal influence of the OSF to go somewhat unanswered.|

|US/Department of State||Set up in 1789, the US State Department is the United States federal executive department responsible for international relations of the United States, equivalent to the foreign ministry of other countries.|
