Intellectual Independence Policy

The Policy Insights Forum (PIF) and its staff, fellows, volunteers and directors generate their own ideas and programming consistent with the PIF's mission, their related body of work, and the independent records of the participating team members.  

As a not-for-profit non-governmental organization, the PIF does not adopt or advocate positions on particular matters. The PIF's publications and multimedia productions always represent the views of the author(s) rather than those of the institution.

The PIF maintains strict intellectual independence for all of its projects and publications. PIF staff, fellows, volunteers and directors, and those who the PIF engages to work on specific projects are responsible for generating and communicating intellectual content resulting from PIF projects.  

The PIF requires all donors to agree to the PIF maintaining independent control of the content and conclusions of any products resulting from sponsored projects.
