What is a Think Tank?

Think tanks are public policy research institutes that provide research, independent analysis and advice on domestic and international issues. These organizations employ experts from academia and government who publish a wide range of scholarship including working papers, proceedings from conferences, books, journals and policy briefs. To date there are nearly 6,545 of these organizations currently operating worldwide.
