Lunch generously provided by the LBJ School’s Center for Health and Social Policy (CHASP) and the Smith Richardson Foundation
Federal and state policymakers and philanthropies are increasingly emphasizing the use of evidence to drive policy decisions. However, what exactly is evidence-based policy, and what are some of the challenges to this decision-making approach? The Child and Family Research Partnership at The University of Texas at Austin’s LBJ School of Public Affairs is hosting a symposium on Thursday, April 16th to bring together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, philanthropies, and students to discuss the benefits and challenges of evidence-based policy.
