Transparify proudly presents its 2015 think tank transparency report, detailing the levels of financial disclosure of over 160 think tanks located in 47 countries worldwide.
· Over 26 think tanks have disclosed significantly more data over the past year
· A total of 31 policy research institutions are now highly transparent (5-star)
· Over half of U.S. think tanks are now broadly or highly transparent
Over the coming two days, we will collect reactions from the media and think tankers worldwide and post a summary on this blog.
