Launch of the Global Go To Index Report 2013

Often referred to as the "think tank’s think tank," TTCSP examines the evolving role and character of public policy research organizations.

The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) at the International Relations Program, University of Pennsylvania conducts research on the role policy institutes play in governments and in civil societies around the world. On Wednesday, 22 January 2014, the TTCSP released its 2013 Report. At the same time, more than 25 global partners implemented local events to present the report in the national language and to discuss it with leading think tank representatives in a regional context.
