Think tanks and elections

Latin American think tanks have adopted an approach to influence electoral processes that offers lessons for other think tanks across the world. The series has been edited by Leandro Echt as part of a collaboration between On Think Tanks and CIPPEC. It has been published at VIPPAL in Spanish. Some thinktankers may suggest that electoral years are dead for think tanks: they are not good for research or for communicating their findings because they do not know who might win and what they will decide to do -and so it is best to wait until after the elections. As the articles in this series shows, this is not necessarily true. The series is accompanied, below, by cases from other regions of the world and by a compilation of initiatives.
