More information

What measure determines whether elections are free and fair?
The first two criteria are based on the Freedom Index. If donations are accepted from a foreign government of a state that is determined to be 'free' these criteria are fulfilled. If, however, the state in question is non-qualifying, i.e. labelled either 'partly free' or 'not free', then the beneficiary may not claim the Clean Cash mark.

What about academic ties with universities in despotic states from which domestic institutions may benefit in a number of ways?
If it can be demonstrated that the university in question is independent of the state, then a domestic institution or organisation may be entitled to claim the Clean Cash mark.

What if donations are accepted from an philanthropic individual of a despotic state rather than its government?
If it can be demonstrated that the benefactor from a particular non-qualifying country is not connected or has not directly profited from the state, then the recipient may be entitled to claim the Clean Cash mark.

What constitutes transparency?
All donations from non-qualifying countries accepted by an institutions must be publicly available, and all academic and financial links with foreign institutions must be published.
