TNGO is an international, independent, and nonprofit think tank providing free in-depth analyses about international affairs. You can read more about our editorial staff here.
TNGO was born out of the necessity to provide unbiased analyses of international political phenomena to the widest audience possible. We have three distinguishing features:
1. Independent: TNGO is based on voluntary contributions and does not accept funding from external sources. Our goal is to write impartial analyses to educate the general public.
2. International: TNGO is one of the few think tanks to publish contents in four languages with an international team of editors.
3. Nonprofit: TNGO does not generate profits and does not share dividends. All our revenues and donations (if any) are immediately re-invested in the think tank.
We at TNGO try to be as accessible as possible. For this reason, we now publish contents in four languages (English, Italian, Spanish, French) and we are planning to feature contents in other languages too.
Of course. We are always looking for new contributors that share our vision of journalism to join TNGO.

If you want to have your pieces published occasionally and at your own pace, you can become a Guest Contributor for TNGO by sending the pieces you would like to publish to firstname.lastname@example.org together with a brief motivational statement.
