The UvA Library is offering trial access to Policy Commons, a database that provides access to international think tank, IGO and NGO publications. The trial period runs from October 2 to November 12, 2023. Employees and students who use the database during the trial are called upon to share their feedback with the Library.

Policy Commons is a search platform that contains policy documents, research and working papers, charts, media, case studies and datasets from more than 24.000 organizations (NGOs, thinktanks, IGOs, and research centres). This so-called grey literature is usually not easy to find. Policy Commons offers a searchable directory, where you can access wide-ranging full text documents published by organizations in 160 countries, such as Amnesty International, Environmental Law Institute, Council of Europe, Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, Global Knowledge Partnership on Migration and Development, Africa Institute of South Africa, Education Sub-Saharan Africa, African Union, Rand Corporation, The Asia Foundation, OECD, WHO, ILO, Pew Research Centre, Heritage Foundation, and many more.
