How can a think tank write reports that have impact? Can headlines be planned? Is impact on the public debate and impact on policy makers the same? Starting with ESI publications on Bosnia – the European Raj (2003); Lost in the Bosnian labyrinth (2013); Protest and Illusions (2004-2014) – this presentation by ESI chairman Gerald Knaus examines the strategy of a European think tank: from research strategies to writing style to dissemination efforts. The presentation also looks at the background story to a widely read report on Turkey – Islamic Calvinists (2005) – and the challenge of tackling another burning political issue in Turkey today: political justice.
