Think tanks in Asia

zimmermanIn a review (DOI: 10.1080/00472336.2016.1230641) of Erin Zimmerman’s Think Tanks and Non-Traditional Security. Governance Entrepreneurs in Asia, Silvia Menegazzi of the Dipartimento di Scienze Politiche, Libera Universita Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli notes that “think tanks function as non-state actors profoundly entrenched within the vast, multi-layered and globalised array of international political actors.” They require attention.

According Zimmerman’s book “investigates the largely unexplored potential of think tanks in Asia.” She concludes that the book makes an original contribution. She says: “Zimmerman’s book is … an excellent point of reference not only for experts and political scientists interested to improve their knowledge about think tanks, but also to those who wish to enhance their ability to understand how think tank networks and ideational processes are able to affect decision-making environments and political agendas at different level of governance in the vast and multilayered arrangement within the field of non-traditional security in Asia.”
