The world's top think tanks

Saw this report during the week, and was amused to note that I have worked for two of the top ten (non-US) think tanks identified in the survey:

Centre for European Policy Studies (CEPS), Belgium
French Institute of International Relations (IFRI), France
German Institute for International Politics and Security (SWP), Germany
Institute of World Economy and International Relations (IMEMO), Russia
International Crisis Group (ICG), Belgium
International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS), United Kingdom
Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies (now merged into the Institute for National Security Studies), Israel
Japan Institute of International Affairs (JIIA), Japan
Royal Institute of International Affairs (Chatham House), United Kingdom
Shanghai Institute for International Studies (SIIS), China

I've had dealings with all six of the western European ones but none of the other four, which I guess reflects the places that find my areas of expertise of interest.

If you're interested in the top thirty American think tanks, they are:

American Enterprise Institute
Baker Institute of Public Policy
Brookings Institution
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace
Carter Center
Cato Institute
Center for American Progress
Center for Global Development
Center for Strategic and International Studies
Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Council on Foreign Relations
Economic Policy Institute
Henry L. Stimson Center
Heritage Foundation
Hoover Institution
Hudson Institute
Institute for International Economics
Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies
Manhattan Institute
National Center for Policy Analysis
New American Foundation
Nixon Center
National Bureau of Economic Research
Progressive Policy Institute
Resources for the Future
Urban Institute
United States Institute of Peace
Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
World Resources Institute

I think I've had dealings with about half of them.
