First Digest on the Role and Influence of Think Tanks


First Digest on the Role and Influence of Think Tanks

This new product of the Center for Economic Research presents the selection of most relevant publications from mass media, think tanks, networks, newsletters, journals and blogs on the on-going debate on the role think tanks play in society, government, public policy, and elections.

The hottest discussions are evolving around the funding issues, especially, coming from foreign countries. Does foreign funding undermine the image of think tank and influence national policy? What are the expectations of policy makers from policy advice? Is there difference among governmental and non-governmental think tanks? How think tanks could communicate more effectively to reach policymakers?

The publication contains case studies of Israel and China think tanks, as well as provides a series of stories on the think tanks’ influence in electoral campaigns.
