This completely revised edition of Global Think Tanks: Policy Networks and Governance provides a clear description of, and context for the global proliferation of think tanks. It explores the origins, development and diversity of think tanks and policy networks, discusses past and current issues facing transnational think tanks and considers the possible future challenges and developments. The updated content reflects recent trends such as globalization, digitalization, artificial intelligence, populism, and disinformation; and also includes a new chapter on shifting attitudes towards age and gender.
This volume will be of great interest to all students of international relations and international organizations, alongside policy professionals working at think tanks around the world.
