    • BCSP Remains on the List of Top Think Tanks in the World in 3 Categories

    •  
    • Date: 30 January 2020

      For the eighth consecutive year, BCSP was recognized among the best think tanks in the world on the research topics of defence and national security, and foreign policy and international relations.

      University of Pennsylvania (USA) traditionally publishes the Global Go To Think Tank Index Report - the most comprehensive list of leading think-tanks from around the world every year.

      In 2019 BCSP is ranked as:

      • 18th on the list of Top Think Tanks in Central and Eastern Europe,
      • 56th on the list of Top Think Tanks by Area of Research Defence and National Security, while first on the list from the region, and
      • 60th on the list of Top Think Tanks by Area of Research Foreign Policy and International Affairs, while first on the list from the region.

      A small number of think-tanks per category get to be nominated each year, especially from the Western Balkans, which makes the nomination an achievement in itself, and we congratulate all of our colleagues from Serbia that made it into this year’s list.

      Some of the criteria used in assessing the significance of each organization are:

      • Quality, dedication and reputation of the management and employees;
      • Quantity, quality and the effect of research;
      • Reputation among the policy makers and politicians;
      • The level, diversity and stability of financing and management efficiency;
      • Ability to communicate via traditional as well as new media;
      • Ability to include new participants in the policy making process;
      • Ability to create new basis of knowledge and alternative ideas;
      • Impact on society.

      Global Go-To-Think Tank Index is the response of the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at University of Pennsylvania (USA) to numerous demands from policymakers, journalists, public and private donors to have a list of most prominent national, regional and international research centres. In the process of nominating and ranking, besides think tanks, participated representatives of universities, institutes, government, non-government, international and donor organizations, and independent experts and journalists.
