Bruegel, committed to transparency and independence, is evaluated every three year by an independent committee: the Bruegel Review Task Force (RTF). The current RTF, reviewing the activity of Bruegel in the period 2013-2016, is chaired by Prof. Katarzyna Śledziewska. The remaining members are:
Frances Cairncross: BBC Journalist, Economist, Academic,
Otmar Issing: President at Center for Financial Studies, former member of the Executive Board at the European Central Bank,
Enrico Letta: Former Prime Minister of Italy,
Xavier Ragot: President OFCE (French Economic Observatory).
The work of the RTF is supported by dr Renata Włoch. During the review process, Renata and Katarzyna conducted more than 20 interviews with Bruegel stakeholders, including members of the Bruegel Board: Jean-Claude Trichet (former President of the European Central Bank), Jerzy Hausner (Cracow University of Economics), Wolfgang Franz (former Head of the ZEW Research Institute in Mannheim) and many others.
