Practitioner Workshop: The Past and Future of Evidence Based Policy.
Part of the Festival of Social Science 2019 at NIESR
In this seminar, a collaboration with CAGE at the University of Warwick, we will consider the past and future of evidence in UK political debate. Why has the evidence-based approach proven vulnerable to populist politics and can the approach be renewed? What are the origins of EBP and what were its most notable successes and failures? Our panel of speakers from academia, politics, policy-making and journalism will provide a rich discussion of these questions.
Mirko Draca, University of Warwick: Evidence versus Populism: How the Battle was Lost (and can be Won Again).
Adrian Pabst, University of Kent and NIESR Fellow: Populism: threat or corrective to evidence-based policy making in a liberal democracy?
