Intellectual Independence Policy
The CYIS and its staff, fellows, and directors generate their own ideas and programing, consistent with the Centre's mission, their related body of work, and the independent records of the participating team members. The Centre as an organization does not adopt or advocate positions on particular matters. The Centre's publications always represent the views of the author(s) rather than those of the institution.
The CYIS maintains strict intellectual independence for all of its projects and publications. Centre staff, fellows, and directors and those who the Centre engages to work on specific projects, are responsible for generating and communicating intellectual content resulting from Centre projects. The Centre requires all donors to agree to the Centre maintaining independent control of the content and conclusions of any products resulting from sponsored projects. The Centre also discloses sources of financial support in its annual reports to ensure transparency.
