Insights from Practitioners: How to Initiate and Develop Relationships with Partners, Donors and Stakeholders, and Improve Cooperation between Ukrainian and EU Think Tanks


The publication developed by the Ukrainian Think Tanks Liaison Office in Brussels with support of the European and Ukrainian offices of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung is now now available. It provides practical recommendations to think tanks for them to work with partners, donors and stakeholders more effectively and aims at facilitating cooperation between think tanks in Ukraine and the EU.

The publication is an outcome of a research project that consists of a qualitative survey of  interviews with members and partners of the Office. Experienced professionals in policy analysis and/or think tank management in Ukraine and the EU were interviewed about the operating environment of think tanks and the main factors of their success. We asked about the desirable approaches to organizational management and internal structure, ways to achieve high-quality analytical product, maintaining financial sustainability and ensuring impact on stakeholders. We have found that both Ukrainian and EU think tank practitioners have similar views on these matters.
