Lessons from the General Election

Jane Dodson (Alliance for Useful Evidence) shares highlights from a recent roundtable discussion on what worked- and what didn't- in the 2015 General Election fact checking campaigns, and how future campaigns can be more effective.

Stats, facts and evidence at the election

In this blog by Prateek Buch, policy director of Sense About Science’s Evidence Matters campaign, highlights key messages from our recent ‘Stats, Facts and Evidence-Checking: what role for evidence in the General Election – and beyond?’ event. Buch explores points raised at the meeting about the need for quality interpretation of evidence, new efforts such as The Conversation’s Manifesto Check to champion evidence during the election and the question of what needs to change if efforts to ‘bolster’ evidence are to succeed.
