Our work at ISDP is strengthened by engaging with sponsors and funders, who share our interests in interpreting and informing the policy debate. The support provided by funders to the Institute is invaluable and allows us to expand and improve our work, and to sustain our independence. We acknowledge and appreciate funders’ support to the Institute, and are humbled by their confidence in our work.

ISDP seeks to cooperate with its funders concerning projects and deliverables. Nonetheless, ISDP does not accept influence or instructions by funders with regard to content or conclusions drawn in its analytical work, or concerning the division of responsibilities in ongoing projects.
