Report Finds Think-and-Do Tanks are Filling Void
A new report by The Center for Michigan finds that more than a dozen nonpartisan think-and-do tanks have sprung up to fill the void between polarized political parties and clashing interest groups. These organizations combine research by public-policy experts with pragmatic, fact-based problem-solving in the public arena.
The report says that at both the state and the national level, many believe that politicians are failing to grapple with the basic issues, much less solve them. The new, nonpartisan think-and-do tanks are working to fill that void.
The Center for the Future of Arizona is one of seven organizations profiled in the report “Thinking & Doing: Nationwide Citizen Groups Push for Political Pragmatism.”
