Abstract: Think tanks have increased their presence globally as social actors and provide evidence-based research for the complex policymaking process. How they can best influence policymakers is a common topic of analysis. There is an equal increase in the research using them as an object of study and exploring their area of influence. Periodical rankings and studies, both academic and non-academic, have been devoted to the impact of think tanks on media and institutions, analysing their presence, and explaining how, and if, they become influential.
