The shortlist in each 2018 category—plus our judges revealedby Prospect Team / July 2, 2018 / Leave a comment
Prospect magazine is proud to announce the shortlist for the 2018 Think Tank Awards. Founded in 2001, the awards are an annual recognition of the important and inﬂuential work carried out by Think Tanks across the globe. The awards are judged by an independent, cross-party panel chaired by the Editor, Tom Clark. The judges look for evidence of inﬂuence on public policy and on the public discourse and consider the quality of research—and the potential of younger and smaller organisations. The awards will be given at an event in London on July 17. The shortlist by category, and a full list of judges, are below.
