About NGO, IGO, and Think Tanks

In political science research the information gathered, analyzed, and published by think tanks, non-governmental, and intergovernmental organizations is often incredibly valuable and often more current than what is in books and scholarly journals. While it is important to understand the goals, funders, and policy objectives of these organizations, they usually do publish their information for free on the web. To find out more about the leanings of any particular organization, Wikipedia is often the quickest way to find out more about them. Use the links on this page to help you locate these organizations.
