Brookings Institution

The Brookings Institution "functions as an independent analyst and critic, committed to publishing its findings for the information of the public. In its conferences and activities, it serves as a bridge between scholarship and public policy, bringing new knowledge to the attention of decision makers and affording scholars a better insight into public policy issues." Their work is divided into three main areas: Economic Studies, Foreign Policy Studies, and Governmental Studies (they offer breakdowns of their work in each of these areas). They also offer extensive information on their scholars (handily arranged by areas of expertise), topical areas of interest in "Hot Topics," and their publications (including "Brookings Papers on Economic Activity"). Finally, they offer information about themselves and related organizations.
