Title: 2011 Global Go To Think Tanks Report
Author: International Relations Program - University of Pennsylvania
Date: 23/01/2012
The 2011 Global Go To Think Tanks Report was formally launched last week at the National Press Club in DC and at the United Nations in New York and will be launched this week in Europe at the World Economic Forum and at the African Union meeting in Africa.

The report’s publication is the culmination of an eight-month process involving the support of think tanks and experts from every region of the world. Despite the scope of the project, the rankings are conducted without the benefit of a full time staff or budget, instead made possible with the assistance of a group of research interns from the University of Pennsylvania and other colleges in the Philadelphia area.
