Thinking about Think Tanks
Think tanks can
be a great resource for research on a variety of topics, but you need to be mindful that
think tanks can be, and often are, advocacy oriented.
The fact that a think
tank refers to itself as non-partisan just means that it has no formal
connection to a political party, not that it doesn’t have an ideological
orientation that may be more consistent with a given political party.
