For algebraic stacks over a number field, we define their Brauer-Manin pairings, Brauer-Manin sets, and extend the descent theory of Colliot-Th\'el\`ene and Sansuc. By extending Sansuc's exact sequence, we show the torsionness of Brauer groups of stacks that are locally quotients of varieties by connected groups. With mild assumptions, for stacks that are locally quotients or Deligne-Mumford, we show that the Brauer-Manin obstruction coincides with some other cohomological obstructions such as obstructions given by torsors under connected groups or abelian gerbes, generalizing Harari's original results. For Brauer-Manin sets on these stacks, we show the properties such as descent along a torsor, product preservation are still correct. These results extend classical theories of those on varieties.
