Policy Process: Nonprofit Institutions in the United States

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    This article examines the development of expertise and policy knowledge from the late nineteenth century through today within the context of a strong antistatist tradition. The growth on nonprofit institutions, especially think tanks, emerged in the early twentieth century to bring nonpartisan expertise to public policy and government administration. In the post-World War II period, policy expertise became increasingly politicized but continues to play an essential role in public policy within the American system.
