PSSI Continues To Ascend In Global Think Tank Rankings

23.01.2014

PSSI is pleased to announce that of some 6,800 Think Tanks surveyed worldwide, it has been ranked the #1 Think Tank in the Czech Republic for the third consecutive year and the #8 think tank in Central and Eastern Europe (excluding Russian entities) by the Think Tank and Civil Society Program at the University of Pennsylvania which publishes annually the prestigious Go-To Think Tank Index.

In addition, PSSI was ranked as the 57th Think Tank in the world in the category Top Foreign Policy and International Affairs Think Tanks and 49th in the world in the Think Tanks to Watch category. The Institute moved up six slots in the global ranking from last year (when it was 63rd) and made the list of the leading 50 Think Tanks To Watch for the first time.

To all of our staff, friends, supporters and donors, our successes would not be possible without your active help and loyal following of our progress over the past 11 years.  Our heart-felt appreciation goes to all of you for honoring us and Olda Cerny (PSSI's late executive director) in this special way.
