Funding and supporting think tanks

The effect that funders and other supporters of think tanks have on them should not be underestimated. Often, schemes to support think tanks turn out to be damaging to them and their objectives. On Think Tanks dedicates considerable efforts to study the role of funders and supporters in shaping think tanks and their contribution to policy and public life.

Of particular interest for On Think Tanks is the role of domestic funders, transparency, and the long term development of individual skills, organisational competence, and the institutions that will maximise the contribution of research to policy.
