The Global Go to Think Tank Index Report is an annual ranking of the world’s top think tanks, compiled by the Lauder Institute’s TTCSP Program at the University of Pennsylvania. The objectivity and impartiality of Global Go to Think Tank Index Report is ensured by polling of over 68,000 journalists, politicians and experts worldwide. The TTCSP database includes information about 8,162 think tanks around the world. Since 2006, James G. McGann, the author of the project, has been publishing an annual detailed and thorough study. This year, it has been the sixth consecutive parallel presentation of project results in dozens of countries.
