FES ranked as one of the world’s top think tanks


The Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung has been once again ranked as one of the best think tanks worldwide.

In the 2014 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report released by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program of the Lauder Institute, The University of Pennsylvania, FES garnered top spots in various categories, including “Think Tanks with the Most Innovative Policy Ideas / Proposals” where it landed 10th place.

The report, published last February 2015, looked into the current trends well as the emerging issues that think tanks face. The report also stressed the importance for think tanks “to produce timely and accessible policy-oriented research that effectively engages policymakers, the press, and the public on the critical issues facing a country”.

The Go To Think Tank Index provides the most comprehensive ranking of the world’s top think tanks. ###
