In an era when some national governments are turning inward, retreating from international commitments and collaboration, it’s more crucial than ever for research and civil society organizations to maintain ties of knowledge-sharing and policy partnerships for addressing the transnational challenges of our time.

On January 31, think tank presidents and researchers from around the world convened for the annual “Why Facts and Think Tanks Matter” forum for a discussion on global trends in politics and policy advice. The forum also featured the launch of the 2018 Global Go To Think Tank Index report from the University of Pennsylvania’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program.
