THINK TANK : A Think tank is an organisation that performs research in advocacy, concerning topics such as social policy, political strategy, economics, military, technology and culture.
The world is witnessing the rise of populism, nationalism, and protectionism. New security threats have emerged which includes cyber, artificial intelligence, migration & climate change. There is an ever growing need to get to the roots of these issues.
A Think Tank is able to provide both interdisciplinary and nuanced perspective of issues. Unlike governments, think tanks are not limited by time and therefore are better equipped to provide inputs that can aid key stakeholders in taking informed decision.
The objective of the 'Why (Do) Think Tanks Matter' event is to have think tanks around the world provide compelling examples to the critical work they perform in a range of political and economic contexts. We believe that the round table on February 2 , 2018 will help in sharing an Indian perspective to the global debate.
