Christian Think-Tanks in Europe and North America
In contemporary literature, think-tanks are often considered political, strategic, security, foreign policy and international relations. Unfortunately, the concern for religious think-tanks is missing from scientific analysis. The most appropriate classification of think-tanks entails specific religious defining them. Thus, we will consider: religious analysis think-tanks, Christian think-tanks (with their categories: Catholic, Orthodox, Protestant and Evangelical), ecumenical and inter-religious think-tanks, Islamic think-tanks, Jewish think-tanks; Buddhist think-tanks, New Age think-tanks, atheist think-tanks. Among these, Christian think-tanks present a common organizational and functional theme, which makes them suitable for a separate approach – which constitutes the object of the following research.
