NOTE: at 1:21 in the video, the reporter mistakenly identifies another alleged Tvind group by the name “International Institute for Communication and Development” ( http://www.iicd.org/ ). But this now defunct nonprofit foundation in The Netherlands had no ties with Tvind. The reporter likely meant the similarly named “Institute for International Cooperation and Development” (also “IICD”), located in the USA and widely reported to be run by Tvind.

In mid-2013, the U.S.-based IICD changed its name to “One World Center.” The Dutch IICD ceased operations in The Hague on December 31, 2015.
