PSSI Moves Up To 7th Ranking in Central and Eastern Europe In Prestigious University of Pennsylvania “2014 Global Go-To Think Tank Index“

26.01.2015

The Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) is pleased to announce that it has improved its global ranking in Central and Eastern Europe (including Russia) from 12th to 7th over the past year and remains the #1 think tank in the Czech Republic for the fourth consecutive year.


This week, the Think Tank and Civil Society Program (TTCSP) at the University of Pennsylvania released its 2014 “Global Go-To Think Tank Index Report“. This is the most comprehensive annual survey of public policy institutions available and evaluates the work of more than 6,500 think tanks worldwide. Over 1,900 experts and peer institutions are involved in the production of this survery, including academic institutions, journalists, international organizations and key stakeholders.


Excluding Russian think tanks (often government-sponsored), PSSI placed 5th in Central and Eastern Europe, a region (when Russia is included) with a combined population of nearly that of the United States. Below is a summary of PSSI‘s achievements over the past year:

  • 7th “Top Think Tank in Central and Eastern Europe“ (moving up from 12th position in the last year’s global ranking)
  • 76th among the “Top Foreign Policy and International Affairs Think Tanks“ in the world
  • 51st in the category of “Think Tanks to Watch“
  • 61th among “Best Managed Think Tanks“ (a first-time PSSI presence)

PSSI would like to express our sincere appreciation to our partners, donors, staff, researchers, alumni and other supporters for their generous time and resources, without which we would not be able to maintain this upward trajectory in the fulfillment of our mission.
