Lecture - Research & evidence in policymaking: 25 Jun

Director of leading political thinktank, the Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR), will offer a unique insight into the dynamics of how research and evidence are used in national policymaking later this month.

Nick Pearce, Downing Street’s former Head of Policy Unit, will deliver his lecture on 25 June.

In Distant voices, unstill lives: research and policymaking in a changing political landscape, Nick will examine when research and evidence influences policymakers and what happens to evidence-based policy as politics become more pluralist and fractured.

This Institute for Policy Research (IPR) Public Lecture is free and open to all, from 6.15 - 7.30pm in room 2.4 of the 3 East Building, University of Bath.

Hugh Lauder, Director of the IPR, said: “I am delighted to welcome Nick to Bath. Across the many policy challenges we face, locally, nationally or internationally, the need for inter-disciplinary research is clear to see. So too is the need for stronger collaborations across the political divide, and between different agencies. Nick’s lecture will highlight how we could better use the UK’s research potential in formulating and evaluating future public policy.'
