|Virtual Networks A "Virtual Network" is a group of Think Tanks identified by certain semantic and normative (ideological) commonalities (e.g. climate change scepticism). Such a virtual network constitutes a research field that differs from the study of formal networks. Formal networks are real in the sense of officially acknowledged and immediately open to empirical validation. Virtual networks on the other hand display shared ideas. Social network analysis tools can be applied to find out if or to what extent virtual networks are real networks that display linkages (membership in networks, personnel, resources etc.). Unconnected think tanks in turn can be considered special cases in need of explanation independent from network structures (unless we have to assume invisible, hidden or covered ties).||Neue Rechte|
The Deutschland Bewegung - Movement for Germany - was founded by Alfred Mechtersheimer, formerly in CDU and CSU, then member of the Federal Parliament for the Green Party and opponent of NATO. He was also a member of the German airforce, in a teaching and PR position.

People or legal entities that either support the Think Tank with their reputation or with their money.
The organisation seems defunct as the website shows a last change in 2013.
We used the DGs of the EU to generate a basic list of topics. This list is going to be steadily extended. However we try to preserve a persistent list of topics.
