Turkish think tanks

Turkish think tanks

Turkish think tanks are relatively new. [" [http://www.turkishdailynews.com.tr/article.php?enewsid=31800 Turkey's think tank scene] ," "Turkish Daily News" Dec 27, 2005.] Many of them are sister organizations of a political party or a company. University think tanks are not typical.

Turkish think tanks provide research and ideas yet they play less important roles in policy making when compared with the American think tanks.
