Choose any policy and write 5 pages following the steps :
A key non-institutional actor in the policy process is a think tank/public policy institute/policy organization. Choose one of the policy issues from Issues for Debate. After choosing a policy area and doing some very basic research on the issue, look at a liberal and conservative think tank and compare how they view the issue you have picked. Specifically, you should include a brief discussion of what think tanks are and why they are important to the policy process; some brief background information on your specific think tank, a discussion of how each think tank views the issue you have selected and how the views compare/contrast with one another. The key to this assignment is to get think tanks that are very different from one another in political ideology and to ensure, to the extent possible, that you are comparing the same or a very similar policy issue or aspect of that policy issue.
