  Add to Calendar 2021-10-04 8:57 2021-10-05 17:57 Europe/Paris Evidence Informed Policy Making: Knowledge and Instruments

This Executive Training focuses on the pathways to a robust evidence-base for policy choice, taking into consideration the reality of policy processes, the dynamics of political attention and crisis management as ‘the new normal’. This training blends the best available and most realistic knowledge on how individuals and organizations make decisions in public policy processes with a range of approaches and instruments designed to make the voice of evidence heard when policies are formulated, designed and implemented. Four main thematic trajectories will assist participants in drawing lessons and become familiar with the know-how in the field: the impact of individuals, types of actors, organizational behavior and political-administrative context in the science-policy interface; the pathways in which expert knowledge, science and evidence are utilized in the policy process – and when they are ignored, or deployed symbolically; new approaches to the utilization of tools and policy instruments for evidence-informed policy; the normative implications (that is, the standards of good governance such as transparency and accountability) to meet when bringing evidence and science to bear on public decisions.
