R32: Conducting Research to Influence Policy
According to Burgess (2013) in an article in the Guardian ‘even politicians find it hard to ignore hard facts, and compelling research can help construct policy and predict outcomes’. This sessions will explore the role of research in policy, its influence on policy and its role in evaluating the effectiveness of policy. It also aims to help you understand how you could influence policy with the research you conduct.
