Supporting Government Policy Making: Sharing South African and German Think Tank Experience

Conference Report
South Africa and Germany have a well developed think tank community, ranking among the best in their respective regions. They can play a key role as ‘analysis channels’ in assisting their governments in their global roles. The 21st century global environment, however, requires think tanks to focus and evaluate constantly how relevant their work is for policy makers. Therefore KAS with its partner SAIIA, supported by the ISS, HSS and the German Embassy, convened a workshop with representatives from German and South African think tanks, journalists and government representatives.
