The independent resource on global security

SIPRI funding

The majority of SIPRI's funding comes from governments and independent foundations. We are grateful for their confidence in us and we ensure that these resources are used effectively and efficiently, implementing stringent routines for financial control.

SIPRI research is objective and independent and SIPRI does not accept funding from any source that seeks to interfere with or influence SIPRI research outcomes. This means we think carefully about accepting funding, following the procedure and guidelines set out in our ethical due diligence policy.
