Penn’s Global Index of Think Tanks
February 2, 2010, Volume 56, No. 20

The University of Pennsylvania “Global Go To Think Tank Rankings” places the Brookings Institution first among more than 6,300 think tanks evaluated worldwide.

“The Global Go To Think Tank Rankings,” launched in 2006, has become an authoritative source for the top public policy research institutes in the world. The newest rankings are based on a 2009 global survey of 300 scholars and experts. The panel nominated and ranked nearly 400 organizations.

James G. McGann, assistant director of Penn’s International Relations Program and director of the Think Tanks and Civil Society Program at Penn, compiled the survey. The report is available at www.sas.upenn.edu/irp/.
