Overview

As part of the Global Go To Think Tank Index launch for 2018, Chatham House, LSE IDEAS and the Institute for Government host a simultaneous event discussing the role of think-tanks in government and civil society.

The panel assess:

  • Whether think-tanks can remain relevant to both the public and policymakers in promoting good governance and offer objective policy advice.
  • New communications tools that think-tanks can adopt to better reach the public when competing with other narratives.
  • How London-based think-tanks will respond as Brexit isolates the UK from EU decision-making.
  • The best institutional policies that ensure that civil society organizations in the UK maintain close links with their European counterparts to continue to influence in EU policy.
