The Istituto Affari Internazionali (IAI) has been listed among the top hundred think tanks in the world, the only Italian institute to figure in the yearly ranking compiled by the Think Tank and Civil Society Programme of the University of Pennsylvania. The ranking, which confirms the IAI’s primacy at the national level, stands in recognition to the commitment and quality of the Institute’s staff and research team.
The 2013 Global Go to Think Tank Index was published last week and contains a series of global and sectorial rankings, organised on the basis of geographical location and/or thematic specialisation, drawn up on the basis of an extensive, worldwide, network of contacts and consultations.
In particular, focussing on the most prestigious and global rankings, the IAI is:
– recognized as the only Italian research institute in the top-100 Think Tanks Worldwide (US and non-US), where it figures in 92° place;
– the first Italian institute to figure in the Top Think Tanks in Western Europe, where it ranked 29°;
– the first and only Italian institute to figure in the sectorial rankings for Foreign Policy and International Affairs (25°) and Defence and National Security (26°), two of the IAI’s traditional focus areas.
