The future of think tanks in the global ideas market

Global Go To Think Tank Index 2019

30 January 2020 - 13:00h
LOCATION: CIDOB, sala Capella dels Infants Orfes, Elisabets 24, 08001 Barcelona
ORGANIZED BY: CIDOB in collaboration with the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program of the University of Pennsylvania



The University of Pennsylvania will present their Index 2019 Global Go To Think Tank, directed by James G. McGann, on the 30th of January, 2020. This Index ranks global leading think tanks in different categories and is designed to identify centres of excellence in key areas of public policy research and in every region of the world. 

How have innovations in technology and data visualizations impacted the work of think tanks? What is the value-added of think tanks and how effective have they been at communicating why they matter in a highly competitive, information-rich, global marketplace of ideas? On the occasion of the launch of the index, CIDOB has organized a session of discussion on the future of think tanks and policy advice. The launch will also involve a series of coordinated events in more than 200 international organizations and NGOs, in 125 cities around the world, that are intended to highlight the important role think tanks play in governments and civil societies.
