Event description

Description

For policy to bring positive change to people, it needs to be informed by the best available evidence and local knowledge. Producing robust evidence is just part of the policy-change story; we need to look at where that evidence is – or isn’t – being used by governments, and why. And while we have seen increasing interest in evidence-informed policy-making, relatively little attention has been paid to the political and organisational challenges of embedding a culture of evidence within government departments.

What are the politics of how research-based evidence is used in policy-making: what factors influence decision-makers? What systems help or hinder research use? And how can the development community support robust evidence-informed policy-making?
