      Third year in a row BCSP is voted on the most prestigious list of the top think tanks in Central and Eastern Europe, and among the best in the world on the research topics of defense and national security, and foreign policy and international relations.

      The list is a result of a several months of research covering 6,618 think tanks and related organizations in 182 countries around the world. More than 3,500 institutions, organizations and independent experts, as well as journalists, donors and representatives of government, NGOs and international organizations participated in voting.

Organizations are ranked in 47 categories, according to the region they belong to, the areas explored and specific results they have achieved.
