Ideas, reflections and advice from future think tank leaders

Think tanks and governments are facing challenges that are increasingly complex and urgent. This requires a new generation of think tank leader that brings fresh and creative perspectives to connecting research and public policy.

In 2018-2019, a group of young and proactive thinktankers from around the world joined the On Think Tanks (OTT) Fellowship Programme, designed in partnership with the Think Tank Initiative (TTI).

Fellows got a chance to build their skills and knowledge across a range of core think tank areas, and exchange ideas with think tank leaders and specialists. In turn, they brought fresh and creative perspectives to age-old, and new, think tank problems.

This publication seeks to inspire and inform thinktankers. It is a collection of ideas, reflections and practical advice from the OTT-TTI Fellows 2018-2019.
