Our transparency

Since its establishment, the CDT has been advocating greater transparency in NGO sector. We have been receiving a 5-star transparency ranking from Transparify for years, which places us among the world’s most transparent research centers. The CDT is dedicated to ethical behavior in all aspects of its work and has a number of policies aimed at ensuring that we comply with the highest ethical standards in our work. Find below CDT’s annual reports, which contain information on the activities implemented as well as a detailed revenue and expense overview.


Current projects

Apart from annual reports, we also publish a list of CDT’s ongoing projects, donors and funds allocated, thus once again promoting full NGO transparency.
