In selecting these think tanks, we applied the following standards, adapting our general selection method to the particular region:
- Recognized for quality by domestic policy makers/donors
- Range of donors and financial sources
- At least 2 publications (brief or report) in last year on thematic issue
- At least 5 full time employees (or full time researchers/contributors)
- Representing a diversity of political opinions
We welcome comments and suggestions, specifically for additional institutions that may meet these criteria.
