Systems perspectives on policy development and evaluation


Location: British Library Knowledge Centre, 96 Euston Road, London NW1 2DB

Time and date: Tuesday 26 June 2018, 9.00 – 17.00

Organisers: the Policy Innovation Research Unit and the Social Research Association

Public policies are about changing systems but conventional approaches to their evaluation have largely ignored this insight.  This conference explored these issues with a number of leading thinkers and practitioners of systems approaches to policy development and evaluation, including Diane Finegood, Zenda Ofir, Matt Barnard, Robin Durie and Katie Boswell.

The day brought together researchers and policymakers from a range of sectors and disciplines, to explore the value of systems thinking for understanding policy problems, finding policy solutions and evaluating them.
