The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) of the University of Pennsylvania has released the “Global Go to Think Tank Index Report” (12th edition) with Brookings, IFRI and Carnegie as leading think tanks worldwide.
ISPI ranks 1st worldwide as the “Think Tank to Watch” in 2019, confirming this position for the second year running. Also, the Institute has further strengthened its position as the 1st Italian Think Tank (among 14) in the broader categories of the ranking. In particular, the Institute has leaped up 71 spots over the last four years among the “Top Think Tanks Worldwide (US and non-US)”, reached the 36th position in the category “Top Think Tanks Worldwide (non-US)” - up 57 spots in six years -, and the 15th position in “Top Think Tanks in Western Europe” (+50 positions in six years).
