Global Go to Think Tank Index, what is it?
Global Go to Think Tank Index is a report produced by the University of Pennsylvania with its Lauder Institute and the TTCSP Program that measures and analyzes the quality of work done by different think tanks around the world. This report serves both donors, policy makers, journalists and academics, as a measure or parameter for their choice or rating.
The report is prepared under the direction of James G. McGann, Ph.D .; It has been carried out since 2006 and is presented annually at the beginning of each management. The evaluation process is developed through a survey, proposed to more than 50,000 people, specialists in the economic and social areas. Subsequently, a multidisciplinary team of hundreds of specialists evaluates the results and validates the positions of each of the think tanks.
