Asia Society Policy Institute Ranked in Top 1 Percent of Global Think Tanks
NEW YORK, January 28, 2021 — Asia Society President and CEO and Asia Society Policy Institute (ASPI) President Kevin Rudd issued the following statement in response to the University of Pennsylvania’s annual ranking of think tanks:
“I’m delighted that in just five short years since its founding, the Asia Society Policy Institute has become one of the leading think tanks in the U.S. and the world.
Out of 2,200 American think tanks, Asia Society's Policy Institute has now risen for the first time into the top 30. We’re now number 29.
Just as importantly, out of over 11,000 think tanks worldwide, we have now been ranked for the first time in the top 1 percent.
These are remarkable achievements for our first-class team of policy professionals. And I’d like to thank each of them individually for their outstanding work during the difficult year of COVID-19. The University of Pennsylvania Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program has also noted in its annual Global Go To Think Tank Index Report that ASPI had one of the ‘Best Policy and Institutional Responses to COVID-19.’”
