|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|

Eigentümlich Frei is both a journal - published ten times a year - and a blog with an authorship that covers the New Right, Old Right and the conservative mainstream. Its founder was, in his youth, a member of the FDP and turned later to libertarian capitalism. The title of the journal derives from "Eigentum" (property) and "Freiheit" (liberty) and inspired, according to the founder, by Max Stirner's book "Der Einzige und sein Eigentum".
People leading the Think Tank in the day to day business (CEOs, directorates etc.).

Since 2007 Lichtschlag seeks an alliance between radical-libertarian and national conservative forces. In 2009 Lichtschlag received the Gerhard-Löwenthal-Preis for journalists.
People or legal entities that either support the Think Tank with their reputation or with their money.
The journal sees itself as capitalistic, anarchistic, libertarian and as on the side of the 'libertarian defence'. It aims to change the country, "no less than that'. Main focus is state intervention.

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.
