It Goes to Eleven - Chicago Council #11 on Top Think Tanks to Watch Rankings

And 2012 Chicago Council Survey Report Ranked #5 on the Best Think Tank Report List!

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs was ranked as the #11 “Think Tank to Watch” in the world by The University of Pennsylvania’s Global Go-To Think Tank Index released this week. The 2012 Council’s public opinion survey report, Foreign Policy in the New Millennium, was ranked as #5 on the “Best Policy Study/Report by a Think Tank” (2012-13). This is the first time The Chicago Council on Global Affairs has appeared in this annual survey of 6,826 think tanks around the world. The Council debuted in two other categories, ranking as the #36 “Best Managed Think Tanks” and the #60 “Top Defense and National Security Think Tank in the World.”

“This is a testament to the increasing quality of our studies work and the expansion of our global reach,” said Ambassador Ivo H. Daalder, president of The Chicago Council on Global Affairs. “We look forward to building on this momentum and increasing our ability to generate new ideas and influence discussions about the critical issues confronting the nation and the world.”

The Council's internationally renowned public opinion studies on American views on foreign policy, conducted since 1974, provide rich, comparative data on a series of US foreign policy issues.

Many of you have seen some of these findings on this blog, and we so appreciate your readership!  Thank you!  We have just started the process for our 2014 survey on public opinion to be fielded this Spring  - look forward to both elite and public perceptions this time around. Exciting stuff.

About

The Chicago Council on Global Affairs highlights critical shifts in American public thinking on US foreign policy through public opinion surveys and research conducted under the Lester Crown Center on US Foreign Policy. 

The annual Chicago Council Survey, first conducted in 1974, is a valuable resource for policymakers, academics, media, and the general public. The Council also surveys American leaders in government, business, academia, think tanks, and religious organizations biennially to compare trends in their thinking with overall trends. And collaborating with partner organizations, the survey team periodically conducts parallel surveys of public opinion in other regions of the world to compare with US public opinion. 

The Running Numbers blog features regular commentary and analysis from the Council’s public opinion and US foreign policy research team, including a series of flash polls of a select group of foreign policy experts to assess their opinions on critical foreign policy topics driving the news.
