Systems perspectives on policy development and evaluation





Public policies are about changing systems but conventional approaches to their evaluation have largely ignored this insight.  This conference will explore these issues with a number of leading thinkers and practitioners of systems approaches to policy development and evaluation.

The day will bring together researchers and policymakers from a range of sectors and disciplines. It will explore the value of systems thinking for understanding policy problems, finding policy solutions and evaluating them. The implications of systems thinking for policy evaluation will be a particular focus of the day. Speakers will be drawn from a range of fields of social policy, including, health. The meeting is aimed at both academic and non-academic participants, including research users and research commissioners.

Confirmed speakers include Diane Finegood, Zenda Ofir, Katrina Wyatt and Katie Boswell.

The conference is organised jointly by the Policy Innovation Research Unit and the Social Research Association
