Evidence, Politics and Policies

Date: 4 June 2013

This seminar series will continue next year.

There are widespread current concerns about current 'policies' in various domains as failing, marginalising 'good' practices and causing harm. Yet, policies can be seen as evidence based. How does evidence relate to the development of policies and to policies in location of practice? What counts as evidence? For whom? And at what cost?
