Labour 2014 Party Conference
Tuesday 23rd of September 2014 Walters Suite, Radisson Blu, Manchester
What works: can experimental government make better policies?
This event took place outside the secure zone.
At the 2014 Labour Conference we hosted this fringe event with NatCen Social Research.
We need to test out new ideas and approaches, learn fast about what works best, and what doesn’t work. This may involve starting small and the rolling out nationally. Should we do more of these small scale tests to develop effective policies? How can we get governments to support more experimentation?
The event looked at the success of the Government’s current initiatives to promote experimental evidence, such as the network of What Works centres, and the Behavioural Insights Team.
There was no need to register and refreshments were provided.
