2022 (English)In: Resourceful Civil Society: Navigating the Changing Landscapes of Civil Society Organizations / [ed] Kravchenko, Zhanna; Kings, Lisa; Jezierska, Katarzyna, Springer International Publishing , 2022, p. 37-65Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Think tanks are a special type of civil society organization engaged in research and advocacy. They produce and deliver social analysis to policymakers and the wider public, aiming to influence policy in a given direction while declaring themselves detached from vested interests. This chapter focuses on how the image of independence rhymes with think tanks’ need for significant economic resources, revealing two main strategies to resolve the resulting funding dilemma. The first strategy entails diversification of funding sources; the second is avoiding certain types of funding outright. The concrete sources that individual think tanks eschew turn out to be linked to their ideological profiles: conservative institutions highlighted foreign funding as the most problematic, while market liberal and centrist liberal institutions shunned state funding.
