On Think Tanks was founded in 2010 as a personal blog. I wanted to explore a type of organisation that increasingly featured in the literature and in efforts to strengthen policymaking in the developing world. I felt (and still feel) they could play a positive role in supporting evidence informed policy-making. Since, the topic has gained notoriety and interest in think tanks and the wider evidence informed policy-making agenda has increased.
Today, OTT is a global platform dedicated to the study and support of policy research centres. Our team (including trainers and board members) live and work in 6 continents and our readers reflect this diversity.
