Editorial Policy

Our editorial policy reflects our commitment to producing reliable, high-quality publications. Each piece of content we produce – be it a research report, article, policy paper, or briefing – is the result of meticulous, in-depth research and evidence-driven analysis. We strive for clarity and precision in our writing, and we are dedicated to presenting balanced viewpoints, ensuring fairness and impartiality in all our communications.

For papers written by external authors and published on our site, the views, thoughts, and opinions expressed belong solely to the authors, and not necessarily to the Transatlantic Dialogue Center, its committees, or its affiliated organizations. These papers are intended to stimulate dialogue and discussion and do not represent official policy positions of the Transatlantic Dialogue Center or any other organizations the authors may be associated with. This distinction is crucial to our commitment to fostering open discourse and a diversity of perspectives.
