CRISP - Crisis Simulation for Peace e.V.

In 2012 CRISP signed the Initiative Transparent Civil Society by Transparency International. We hereby follow other German aid organizations and foundations who work towards increasing the transparency of charitable organizations.

We invite other organizations to join us in signing this initiative. Civil society needs to be transparent and organized democratically, otherwise it risks its credibility and hence its legitimacy.

Below, we present an overview of our finances, our structure of organization and decision-making, and the leadership of our organization. For further questions do not hesitate to contact Andreas Muckenfuß.
