About this Event

About the Institute for Government

The Institute for Government is an independent charity working to increase government effectiveness.

We work with all the main political parties at Westminster and with senior civil servants in Whitehall. We provide evidence based advice that draws on best practice from around the world.

We undertake research, provide the highest quality development opportunities for senior decision makers and organise events to invigorate and provide fresh thinking on the issues that really matter to government.

Aims and objectives

Overall aim of the day – to give participants a sense of how policy-making works in practice, and how they can engage effectively with policy makers

Objectives:

· Introduce participants to the reality of how government works;

· Discuss how policy is made and influenced in practice (with particular reference to arts and humanities);

· Share key lessons on different routes to engagement

· Develop skills to build profile and communicate research
