Global Think Tank Landscapes

The Think Tank Hub organized the first interdisciplinary think tank meeting in Geneva to bring together think tanks having an interest in global governance issues and/or a presence in Switzerland. This informal lunch aimed to facilitate the exchange between the different organisations on their experience and best practice. On this occasion special guest James McGann, Director of the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania and Editor of the “Global go to think tank index report” shared with the participants his experience with think-tanks all over the world and results of long years of research. The planned event had four main goals:


  • Promotion of the Global go to think tank index report

  • Promotion of Geneva as a laboratory for ideas

  • Exchange of expertise

  • Networking between the think tanks, stimulating collaboration
