Research Centers

Listing of U.S. and foreign academic and public policy research centers.

Introduction

This guide presents information resources, analysis, data, and visual analytics representing from research institutions (think-tanks) in the U.S. and internationally representing a variety of intellectual and political perspectives. These institutions have different funding sources and conduct research on numerous public policy issues and produce findings which can enhance instructional and research knowledge and are frequently used by U.S. and foreign national governments to implement their polices.. These institutions will be arranged alphabetically by subject in the following areas: Economics and Finance, Education Policy, Family and Social Policy, International Relations, National and International Security, Public Policy/Politics, and Science and Technology Policy. Many of these organizations conduct and publish research in multiple areas besides the subject classification they are listed in on this guide. I welcome suggestions for including additional institutions.
