Harvard's Kennedy School of Government library created this custom Google search. It helps you find hundreds of US and international think tanks
Think tanks are defined by the above as "institutions affiliated with universities, governments, advocacy groups, foundations, non-governmental organizations, and businesses that generate public policy research, analysis, and activity."
Tips: Search these selected think tanks by keywords to find research and analysis.
If one seems most relevant to your topic, go to the home page and mine the site for publications, issues, research, and links to other organizations.
And don't forget to evaluate the Think Tanks as not all are created equal!

A joint effort by Princeton and Columbia Universities.
