Economics/Political Science/International Studies 385: India Today: Think Tanks, Policy Papers, etc

CIAO (Columbia International Affairs Online)

Columbia International Affairs Online (CIAO) is the most comprehensive source for theory and research in international affairs. It publishes a wide range of scholarship from 1991 onward that includes working papers from university research institutes, occasional papers series from NGOs, foundation-funded research projects, proceedings from conferences, books, journals and policy briefs.  Recommendation:  Use the advance search and limit your search to "working papers" or "policy briefs" for more relevant policy documents.
