The Wilson Center and University of Pennsylvania Press are hosting a book launch and discussion of How Think Tanks Shape Social Development Policies with James G. McGann, editor and project director.

Across the globe, there are more than four thousand policy institutes, or think tanks, that research or advocate for economic and social development. Yet the relationship between these organizations and the policies they influence is not well understood. How Think Tanks Shape Social Development Policies examines case studies drawn from a range of political and economic systems worldwide to provide a detailed understanding of how think tanks can have an impact on issues such as education policy, infrastructure, environment and sustainable development, economic reform, poverty alleviation, agricultural and land development, and social policy.

Location: 
6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
 
Event Speakers List: 
  • Assistant Director of the International Relations Program and Director, Tank and Civil Societies Program, University of Pennsylvania
  • Andrew Selee // Executive Vice President and Senior Advisor to the Mexico Institute
