Is Evidence-Informed Policy Just a Pipe Dream?
Monday 11th of July 2016 Royal Statistical Society, London 3:00pm - 5:00pm
Surely it's naive to assume that evaluation, research and data can really play a major part of government. Politics, values and beliefs will always trump research. When it comes to policies on school academies, Syrian immigration or Brexit, evidence is on the sidelines. But the government has helped set up nine What Works Centres. Who will use the research that they summarise?
This presentation and discussion set out some of the ways ahead to make evidence used and useful, by one of the leading advocates Jonathan Breckon, Director of the Alliance for Useful Evidence in conversation with Hetan Shah, Executive Director of the Royal Statistical Society.
