The only Indian think tank to feature in the top 100 for the 5th consecutive year
The 2013 Global Go To Think Tanks Rankings based on a study conducted by the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania ranks Centre for Civil Society(CCS)
CCS, the Indian policy think tank advancing personal, social, economic and political freedoms, aims to usher in an intellectual revolution that encourages people to look beyond the obvious, think beyond good intentions and act beyond activism. CCS is widely recognised as a player that is undertaking evidence based research in key categories like education and livelihood to promote inclusive growth.
In the rankings, CCS also ranks 15th among the top 45 Think Tanks in China, India, Japan, and the Republic of Korea.
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.
Centre for Civil Society (CCS) for a fifth year in a row continues to feature among the top think tanks in the world according to this comprehensive study of 6,826 think tanks from every region
“Being Placed in the top 100 Global Think Tanks in the world for the 5th consecutive year, places increased responsibility on our shoulders, to work for a better Civil Society through effective policy changes, which allow people freedom to choose within a limited regulatory framework” says Parth J Shah, President, Centre for Civil Society. Parth also hopes that with increasing civil society activism in India, more think tanks from India would find a place in the top 100
