As a research institution educating government officials, the media, and the public at large on international affairs issues, we have a responsibility to ensure that our work is free from conflict or bias. One way Stimson does that is through public transparency. On an annual basis, we provide a complete list of donors and funders for the most recent completed fiscal year.
