Although once regarded as scientific and neutral policy research institutions committed to improving governmental decision-making, think-tanks in the United States have in recent decades, made a concentrated effort to become active participants in the political arena. This study examines the changing role of think-tanks in the United States and their growing involvement in the foreign policy-making process. It identifies a number of think-tanks which played an active role in advising Carter and Reagan administrations and explores the various governmental and non-governmental channels they relied on to exercise influence.
