Dutch "independent think tank and academy on international affairs" which continued collaboration with the Institute for Statecraft after the Integrity Initiative leaks

The Clingendael Institute was founded in 1983, partly funded by the Dutch Ministry of Defence. The institute itself does not publish data on its funding, but the Europa Nu website states that it is mainly funded by revenues from activities and grants from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Ministry of Defense.[1]

Own words

The Clingendael Academy website reported in 2020 that it "is one of the largest independent diplomatic training centers around the world. Every year, around 2,500 international professionals from over 60 countries participate in courses at the Clingendael Institute."[2] It calls itself "an independent think tank and academy on international affairs which aims to contribute to a secure, sustainable and just world".[3]


Clingendael was revealed in the 1990s and 2000s to have worked with the MIVD and Operation Gladio-coordinator Max van der Stoel in the 1980s.[4].

In 2011, the institute co-founded the think-tank The Hague Institute for Global Justice, a partnership of academic institutions to promote peace, appointing warmonger Madeleine Albright as chair of its Advisory Council. The institute also focused on building "security and rule of law" in developing countries, and was presumably thereby a vehicle to covertly aid regime change operations. The institute closed its doors 2018, after becoming insolvent.

The group is listed as a "national think tank" alongside SWB and IFRI by a leaked Integrity Initiative document.[5] In March 2019, the group hosted a Chatham House rule meeting on Strengthening Europe's 'soft' and 'hard' defence, in partnership with the IfS. HCSS - An prolific think tank set-up by Clingendael with Rand Europe, the UN, the Dutch MOD and others in 2007.

Deep state connection

Reinier Bergema, a Research Fellow and Project Manager at Clingendael[6] from 2019, previously has published for the British/Dutch disinformation site Bellingcat[7].

Katharine Klačanský became a person of interest after working as an intern-analyst for the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies or HCSS. As part of her study, Klačanský was enrolled at the Clingendael Institute. She later became an organizer for an meeting of the IFS, a UK, deep state organ and the Dutch MOD. In January 2021, Katharine Klačanský's photo was removed from this site after she claimed copyright of the image[From where?]. Klačanský also removed the section from her LinkedIn profile detailing her part as conference organizer[8]. After leaks exposing the Integrity Initiative, Clingendael continued their work with the Ifs, sponsoring Chatham House Rule meetings, aiding a kind of secrecy without pinpointing where exactly for.


Apart from working for "counterterrorism" agencies and actively promoting their consulting services to them worldwide, Clingendael's employees train diplomats and other politicians of friendly countries. In the organisation's 2017 Annual Report, Clingendael noted that they trained 640 diplomats from over 150 countries, as well as civil servants from several other countries. Diplomats from Cyprus, Bulgaria, Georgia, politicians from Bhutan and non-permanent members of the United Nations Security Council were trained in 2017 in all sorts of statecraft, from negotiating techniques to lobbying.[9]
