Abstract: Embracing a multi-stakeholder approach is one of the key characteristics of South- South and Triangular Cooperation (SSC/TrC). A pro-active engagement of think tanks in SSC/TrC contributes to the achievement of international development goals in line with the local context. However, the scarcity of independent platforms and joint research agendas jeopardizes the potential of such engagement. Understanding how think tanks’ abilities and structures are attainment of their main objectives and how these internal capabilities differ between Southern and Northern think tanks is the first step to enhance think tank engagement in SSC/TrC. The roles think tanks can play in SSC/TrC ultimately determine the development of assertive and fruitful collaboration, including to: i) the definition of research topics in line with the post-2015 development agenda, ii) the implementation of a common research agenda; and iii) the support UNDP can provide to SSC/TrC research and engagement.This paper was prepared for UNDP consultation to think tanks at the 2014 Global South-South Development Expo (Washington DC, 20-21 November, 2014) and was based on desk review, e-survey and interviews conducted over two weeks with 21 think tanks actively engaged in SSC/TrC worldwide.
