We have a small staff, a growing network of associates and allies, an advisory group, various supporters and extensive links. We currently have no formal office (we try to run NATO Watch ‘virtually’) although this may change as we hopefully grow, in which case we will share office space with ISIS Europe in Brussels. We also try to develop accountability through good relations.
NATO Watch operates on a small budget. To ensure the ability to provide independent and objective oversight and analysis, NATO Watch seeks support from private individuals and foundations in member states and worldwide. We do not accept NATO central government or defence industry funding, either directly or indirectly. We only accept funds from other governmental bodies for educational materials (as is the case with Amnesty International, for example). We welcome donations.
The Polden-Puckham Charitable Foundation (UK) provided initial seed funding and we are also grateful to the Marmot Trust (UK) for supporting our inaugural shadow NATO summit in March/April 2009.
