Think tank state of the sector 2020-2021 is accessible here.

The Think Tank State of the Sector publication provides an overview of the think tank sector worldwide. It includes the main publication that describes the characteristics of think tanks worldwide in 2020–2021 (based on data from the Open Think Tank Directory); four regional briefs to offer a more nuanced view of think tanks in four different continents (also based on data from the OTTD); and a report, which explores how policy research centres, think tanks and those related to think tanks and evidence-informed policy see the current context, the key challenges faced and the main issues to address.

We invite readers to explore the data and share your perspective and insights on the trends.

Add your organisation to the Open Think Tank Directory to be included in next year’s State of the Sector report.
