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 brings 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 - with a particular focus on the implications of systems thinking for policy evaluation. The event is aimed at both academic and non-academic participants, including research users and research commissioners.
