Claims made in the media suggesting that the Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute is in any way connected to lobbying activities for the former Ukrainian government, or that it is aligned with any government’s foreign policy interests, are completely false. We receive no government funding, and are fully independent from any and all government or parastatal influence.
The Dialogue of Civilizations Research Institute is an international research centre founded on the principles of dialogue, dedicated to understanding governing global trends, developing potential solutions, and identifying future developments. From our inception, we have been an international organisation. Many of the people who work with us have significant experience of policy-making, government, and at international organisations – this is a key strength for us, and it is this depth of experience that makes us effective at what we do.
