– Report


The Working Group on Evidence-Based Public Policy Making continues its work under the auspices of the NISPAcee Annual Conferences. This year, the WG on PP registered ten applications in the main fields of interest (implementation of policy, application of various policy area indices, climate policy, health care resilience system in a COVID-19 setting). Unfortunately, four accepted papers were not presented due to the war in Ukraine, but the remaining six papers remained on the list, with one exception being online. The papers were organised for presentation at the conference in two sessions.

Despite the pandemic challenges, the WG managed to remain a constructive forum for discussion for academic and other policy stakeholders. Through experience exchange on how we can meet the daily needs, we shared best practices in public health policies and identified urgent local needs for policy guidance in different countries. In addition, the group sessions raised the need to reopen discussions on development issues in public policies and lessons learned from public policy building as areas which may be of great interest to Eurasian countries (such as Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Georgia and Kyrgyzstan) and beyond.

All announced participants were present at the conference. As a result, the quality of the presentations was adequate and according to scientific criteria. According to the results of the discussions, the WG decided to continue the work in a multidisciplinary format focusing on public policy development, evidence-based strategic management issues and public health policy interventions.
