The Think Tank Initiative held the first meeting of its Latin American cohort in Buenos Aires on September 15-16. Twelve funded institutions came together to discuss issues, challenges and innovations on policy research in the region. The program also had the opportunity to officially announce its support to these institutions on the eve of the FLACSO/IDRC
organized seminar "21st Century Development in Latin America: Crafting New Options in the World of Independence". Over 100 policy leaders, commentators and researchers from the region joined the Initiative in celebrating this announcement.
