Think tanks and their context

This series, edited by Elizabeth Brown, Aprille Knox, and Courtney Tolmie at Results for Development, focuses on think tanks and their context. The series addresses a subject of great importance to think tanks as well as to those supporting them. It provides a substantial contribution to On Think Tanks’ efforts to promote a more nuanced discussion on the subject -presented below as a secondary series. The main series is based on the study “Linking Think Tank Performance, Decisions, and Context,” undertaken by Results for Development Institute in partnership with the University of Washington and with generous support by the Think Tank Initiative.

Other resources on the context of think tanks could be included here as background reading. These reflect research and analysis undertaken by On Tanks, independently of the study presented above.
