Transparify, a new initiative coordinated by think tank expert Hans Gutbrod, has some excellent resources for those digging deeply into the world of think tanks.
Most notably, the site has four annotated bibliographies on think tanks:
- Think Tank Transparency
- Think Tank Funding
- How Think Tanks Influence Policy
- Corporate Interests and Think Tanks
Here is Transparify's list of key players in the think tank world.
In early 2014, Transparify conducted the first-ever global rating of the financial transparency of major think tanks, and results will be released soon.
Transparify if funded by the Think Tank Fund of the Open Society Foundations (OSF), a grantmaking operation funded by George Soros.
