Reference: Global Think Tank Directory, More Than 6500 Institutions Included in Resource

From the Global Think Tank Directory Homepage:

[This directory] lists think tanks devoted to a wide range of public policy issues. Over 6500 institutions are represented, listed by region and country.

Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program was initiated in part because there was no single source of information on think tanks. National, regional and selective databases have been developed but no comprehensive database existed until now. It is the long term goal of the project to periodically collect and analyze information about these organizations through surveys so that national, regional and global trends can be identified.

Direct to Directory

The directory is a project of the Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program at the University of Pennsylvania.
