BIDPA ranks fourth best African Think Tank

 
09 May 2016

The Botswana Institute for Development Policy Analysis (BIDPA) ranks fourth on the African continent on the 2015 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report, released by the University of Pennsylvania Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the Lauder Institute.


This new ranking is a drastic and significant improvement and is a reflection of growth in the delivery of the institution’s mandate.


The Think Tank has been steadily progressing positively over the past few years. In the 2014 Global Go To Think Tank Index Report, BIDPA ranked fifth, whilst in 2013, 2012 and 2011 the institute was ranked tenth, twelfth and twenty ninth respectively.


The Global Go To Think Tank Index Report is an annual ranking of the world’s top think tanks. As the premier database and measure of world think tanks, the Index aims to increase the profile, performance and impact of think tanks and to create a transnational and interdisciplinary network of centers of public policy excellence.  The report will be translated into more than 20 languages.


It is produced annually by Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) at the University of Pennsylvania. The TTCSP collaborates with leading scholars and practitioners in universities and think tanks in assessing the role and character of public policy research organisations.
