    Other financial info

    For a much fuller breakdown of income and expenditure, as well as the current balance sheet, please refer to Bruegel's Annual Report 2016, available for download at Bruegel has published information on income and expenditure since inception in 2004, all the records are available via our website.

    Bruegel does not have a budget for direct representation of "interests" as it is not an interest representing organisation - it is a public good with varied public and private funding, with checks and balances in place to safeguard its independence, even from its members and other stakeholders.

    Bruegel is fully committed to transparency, and has been since inception, and discloses both income and spending each year as well as disclosing the outside interests (financial and non-financial) of all its scholars and management.

    Bruegel has a number of other measures in place to guard against capture by specific interests including public declarations of outside interests (both financial and non-financial).
