30.06.2016. Institute of World Policy is among the Most Transparent Think Tanks

The Institute of World Policy (IWP), a member of Ukrainian Think Tank Liaison Office in Brussels, is among the most transparent think tanks in the World, according to the survey, published June 29 and conducted by Transparify. The survey covers 200 think tanks in 47 countries worldwide.

IWP has received “5 stars”, meaning that the organization is highly transparent: all donors listed, clearly identifying funding amounts for, and sources of, particular projects. Only three institutions in Ukraine have embraced the gold standard for transparency. In general, only 15 European think tanks from non-EU member states were assessed as highly transparent.

As Transparify notes, being highly transparent these Ukrainian think tanks “bolster their claim to intellectual independence and integrity in a context where intense political rivalry has often raised questions about the credibility of data and policy recommendations”.
