Presentation Transcript


Concerns

Research-based policymaking(RBPM) The use of empirical and scientific evidence as the basis of policy decisions rather than other factors, such as outside influence, vested interests or “gut feeling” (AERC)


Concerns

Government officials may not have enough data and analysis to support them in the formulation of national policies

Developing country negotiators may not have enough data and analysis to support them in international negotiations

Concerns


Concerns

No analysis

Direct advice/analysis from international organizations

Analysis from donor-funded projects(mainly international consultants, sometimes involvement of national consultants)

Locally sourced research

Sourcing of analysis


Concerns

UNCTAD’s work on RBPM

  • Since its origin in 1964, UNCTAD has been stressing the connection between its research and policy advice (direct provision by international organization)

  • Since 2004, decision to focus also on support to national research capacities (locally sourced research) through the Virtual Institute (Vi)

    The aim of the Vi is to help developing countries strengthen the capacities of their universities and research institutions to undertake research and provide policy advice


Concerns

Locally sourced research: the situation

  • A lack of communication (and sometimes trust…) between researchers and policymakers

  • Policymakers are not always informed about ongoing research

  • Researchers often lack knowledge of the most pressing policy questions that they would need to have to make their research more policy relevant


Concerns

Consultancy work for international organizations

Consultancy work for the government

Advisors for the government

Teaching policymakers

Participants are or have been policymakers

Policy advocacy work and consultancy for private sector associations

Participants’ work with policymakers


Concerns

A framework for discussion

1. How to establish contacts between researchers and policymakers

2. How to make applied research policy relevant (what are policymakers’ needs and expectations)

3. How to communicate research findings to policy makers

4. How to increase the likelihood that your research will be used by policymakers
