Resources for interesting reports

I recently discovered that I really enjoyed deep-diving into specific research reports (as opposed to reading the news online).. querying back from a news article I found the "Center for Security Studies" at ETH Zurich and read their report on "The Evolution of Commanders Intent in the US military" which was a really strange experience and really fun because I got an insight into a whole new area of research that I had never thought about.. more in depth than a blog post, less intense/focused than a research paper. I'd like to find more sources like this..

(or meta-ideas on scratching that itch).. I thought of organisations like the World Bank, the WHO, think tanks? I once tried building/finding a google custom search engine that only searched these kind of meta-report/ressources but I didn't get very far.

Congressional Research Service reports. CRS is a branch of the Library of Congress that "works exclusively for the United States Congress, providing policy and legal analysis."

The blog Marginal Revolution by economist Tyler Cowen frequently links to research reports, many of them outside economics (sports, infrastructure, betting, area studies of Asia/Europe/US) that are hand-picked for their excellent research.

The Internet Scout's Scout Report is a great source for in-depth reports and information sources. One new edition each week, usually with a theme. Archives go back into the 1990s. So there's a whole lot there.
