The Working Group began in 2008 as a Panel Session on Policy Analysis Issues and, due to a huge demand, grew into an annual Working Group. It has been a WG on Public Policy Analysis Development Issues for almost 10 years, as a forum for discussion and a unique opportunity to analyse and compare which factors restrict further development and advancement of evidence-based policy making, institutionalisation of policy analysis procedures as the key factors in ensuring good governance, not only in CEE countries. The wide variety of papers and the large number of participants were evidence of the strong interest in evidence-based policy making and policy analysis in the regions. Thus, the WG will continue its activities in supporting the vivid interest of potential stakeholders of evidence-based policy making and institutionalisation of policy analysis procedures to impact on economic, social and political environment in CEE, Central Asia and Caucasus countries and encouraging experience and knowledge exchange on how academics can meet the urgent needs of public servants and civil society.
For the 27th Annual NISPAcee Conference, the WG on EVIDENCE-BASED PUBLIC POLICY MAKING welcomes theoretical, empirical, comparative research papers of academics and practitioners on both diagnosis and possible remedies for the shortcomings or bottlenecks of evidence-based policy making in certain countries and/or regions.
Special attention will be paid to Policy Design and Policy Practice in the European Integration Context.
