The Global Go-To-Think Tank Index Report is an annual document produced by the Think Tank and Civil Societies Program (TTSCP) of the Lauder Institute at the University of Pennsylvania. The report is launched during the “Why Think Tanks Matter Forum”, which is done every year. The index ranks the world’s leading Think Tanks in a variety of categories. TTCSP’s key goal is to increase the profile and performance of think tanks and raise the public awareness of the important role think tanks play in governments and civil societies around the world.

The TTCSP was inaugurated in 1989, with the first launch of the Think Tank Index Report being done in 2006. To date, the Program has produced 13 reports on Global Go To Think Tanks Index. The theme for this year’s launch is: Why Think Tanks and Policy Advice Will Still Matter in 2040.
