Initiative

On Think Tanks Research

New research to support the development of strong and sustainable policy research communities across the world

The On Think Tanks Research initiative aims to:

  • Encourage and support the emergence of new researchers interested in the study of think tanks across the world, with a particular emphasis on developing countries and emerging economies and new research methods.
  • Promote access to new research on think tanks by thinktankers and think tank supporters.
  • Encourage the introduction of think tanks (along with policy research institutes and the broader evidence informed policy agenda) into the research agendas of academic communities in developing regions.

To do this we have published a research agenda and a call for papers which will be promoted via our new Working Paper Series in partnership with University of Bath and Universidad del Pacífico. Find out more in our publications section.
