The next event held by the Geneva Science-Policy Interface (GSPI) on 1 October 2019 will focus on Politics and Power in Evidence-Based Thinking.

This event speaks to the Special Issue of Evidence and Policy journal Moira co-edited with Kathryn Oliver in 2018 on Networks of evidence, policy and practice, and to Moira's 2016 article in Global Policy Why Networks are Hierarchical and Not Flat.

Policy-making is a social process. Therefore, successfully applying evidence-based thinking in practice is dependent on individuals’ interests and power to influence decisions. Evidence-based thinking thus needs to be coupled with methods to make sense of these social realities and find the context-specific leverage points within them.
