Atlantic Council policies
Intellectual independence policy
The Atlantic Council and its staff, fellows, and directors generate their own ideas and programing, consistent with the Council’s mission, their related body of work, and the independent records of the participating team members. The Council as an organization does not adopt or advocate positions on particular matters. The Council’s publications always represent the views of the author(s) rather than those of the institution.

Government funding review process
The Atlantic Council enjoys a diversified donor base helping to ensure our credibility and integrity. As we grow, we increasingly are engaging governments which are interested in supporting programming at the Council. To protect our independence and reputation, we have established a process to obtain authorization to negotiate financing with a government or state-controlled entity.

Donor acceptance and disclosure policy
The Atlantic Council accepts funds from a broad range of sources provided they are for purposes that are in keeping with its mission. These contributions may be payable on an annual basis or over a period of time, or be given as in-kind goods or services. The Atlantic Council is grateful for the contributions it receives, which provides critical support that makes the Council’s work possible.
