The second instalment of the conference series poses a wide range of relevant questions: "What is the state-of-the-art research providing evidence for policymaking in Austria? How might the process of accumulating the facts necessary for evidence-based decision-making be affected when policymakers are responding to political incentives? Might evidence itself become an issue of political debate? What does "post-truth" political rhetoric imply for the future of evidence-based policymaking?".
The conference aims to foster exchange on conceptual, policy-related, and methodological issues among researchers and policymakers. The conference also provides space for discussions on imminent yet enduring questions regarding the relationship between evidence and policymaking and providers of evidence (aka experts) and policymakers.
