NATO Watch is a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee. It presently has a single director and a network of voluntary associates.

Unlike many security think-tanks, NATO Watch receives no government or defence corporation donations. The main source of its income is grants from private trusts and foundations.

NATO Watch also operates independently of government and NATO structures and agencies. On this basis it works in partnership with a number of organisations who broadly share its values and perspective - including Access Info, the British American Security Information Council and the International Security Information Service (ISIS), Europe.

Much of NATO Watch's day-to-day operation takes place 'virtually' through the internet and by the use of new technologies. It works on mutual and cooperative terms with allies and supporters, rather than through bureaucratic structures.

NATO Watch organises and co-sponsors events and conferences. As our work expands we expect to offer a wide range of services - expert briefing, consultancy, training, workshops, seminars and more.
