Why are think tanks more important now than ever before?
OCP Policy Center, Rabat
Building up on last years’ Global Go To Think Tank launch event OCP Policy Center in partnership with the Lauder Institute will be holding an event about “Why are think tanks more important now than ever before?”.
This event is being organized in conjunction with the release of the 2016 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report, and will simultaneously be taking place in other cities to establish global networks of think tank communities in order to improve policy making around the world.
The Global Go To Think Tank Index is the result of an international survey of over 1,950 scholars, public and private donors, policy makers, and journalists who helped rank more than 6,500 think tanks using a set of 18 criteria developed by The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP). The purpose of the index is to help improve the profile and performance of think tanks while highlighting the important work they do for governments and civil societies around the world.
