PRW is a web-based project that has grown out of NIRA's World Directory of Think Tanks (NWDTT). Policy research is a rapidly growing field worldwide, and it is therefore essential that researchers and others interested in public policy have access to an efficient means of staying abreast of research output. One of NIRA's missions is to fulfill a vital function as a "clearing house" for information on policy analysis and research conducted by think tanks worldwide. In order to fulfill this aim, NIRA has developed PRW as a fundamental tool for policy researchers particularly who have a global perspective.
