The PASOS Think-Tanks Awards

The PASOS Think-Tank Awards commend the work and achievements of organizations that demonstrate outstanding work to promote the values and goals of PASOS in promoting and protecting democracy, human rights and open society values – including the rule of law, good governance, and economic and social development.

The annual Awards are given in two categories: Achievement of the Year and Best Policy Publication of the Year. The winners are announced at the association’s annual international policymakers conference.

The awards are open to PASOS Members and Associate Members. The members and PASOS Board members can submit nominations, including self-nominations in the case of Members and Associate Members, for any or all categories.

The winner are selected by a jury of leading experts from the international think-tank world and experienced policymakers with a knowledge of the policy challenges facing young and aspiring democracies in Europe and Central Asia.
