The Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) is pleased to announce that it has maintaned its 6th position in global ranking in the cathegory Central and Eastern Europe (including Russia) for the second consecutive year and remains the #1 think tank in the Czech Republic for the sixth consecutive year.
Last week, the Think Tank and Civil Society Program (TTCSP) at the University of Pennsylvania released its "2016 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 4th 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:
PSSI would like to express our sincere appreciation to our partners, donors, staff, researchers, interns and alumni for their support, without which we would not be able to maintain this upward trajectory in the fulfillment of our mission.
