We are pleased to report that the Prague Security Studies Institute was ranked as the 7th top Think Tank in Central and Eastern Europe according to the latest global “Go To Think Tank Index”.

The Index is produced by The Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program (TTCSP) at the Lauder Institute of the University of Pennsylvania, which surveys and ranks some 8,100 NGOs around the world.

PSSI was ranked as #62 in the world among both the Top Defense and National Security Think Tanks and the Top Foreign Policy and International Affairs Think Tanks.

PSSI was also ranked #59 among the Best Managed Think Tanks globally. The Index also positioned PSSI as #28 in the world on the list of the Think Tanks to Watch in 2020. PSSI has been in the “top ten” rankings for the region for many years and the number one think tank in the Czech Republic. We will not disappoint those watching, as PSSI is primed for unique contributions to our common security and prosperity in the years ahead.
