CCS - only Indian think-tank to feature in world's top 100 list
Centre for Civil Society (CCS) for a fourth year in a row continues to feature among the top think tanks in the world according to a comprehensive study of 6,603 think tanks from every region of the world, or what is also called 'an insider's guide to the global marketplace of ideas'.

The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania annually ranks think tanks around the world through an intensive process of nominations, and expert and peer institution feedback on the output, impact and influence of global think tanks.

CCS ranks 51st in Top 150 Worldwide (US and non-US) think tanks, the only Indian think tank to feature in the top 100 on the list. CCS also ranks 15th in Top 45 Think Tanks in China, India, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.

CCS was ranked based on several indicators of resources, utilization, outputs and impact. The rankings were first initiated in 2006, and CCS has consistently featured among the highest ranked centres of excellence globally, based on not just our research and analysis, but also on “our engagement with policy makers and ability to influence policy decisions”.

CCS’ high ranking, compared to most of the 269 Indian think tanks surveyed in the study, is based on its multi-sector, multi-disciplinary approach, spanning research and analysis, policy reform, proofs of concept, and advocacy in education, livelihoods, governance, and rule of law.

The 2012 Global Go To Think Tanks Rankings report is based on a worldwide survey of 1,900 scholars, journalists, policy makers and peers from 120 countries. The evaluation process is a mix of peer and expert nomination, and ranking and final review by Expert Panels.

Centre for Civil Society is an independent, non-profit, research and educational organisation devoted to improving the quality of life for all citizens of India by reviving and reinvigorating civil society.
