The Global Go To Think Tank Index and Report is the most comprehensive ranking of the world’s top think tanks. It is produced by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania, which focuses on the role policy institutes play in government policy-making and in civil societies around the world. The Report was launched at World Bank Headquarters in Washington DC, United Nations Headquarters in New York and 21 cities and policy hubs around the world including Canberra. More than 200 print and electronic media outlets featured last year’s Report findings. To learn more about the Report please visit
