Evidence-informed country-level policymaking (59)

HIFA Quotation: 

Convening the key stakeholders up front in order to formulate the key questions necessary for making decisions from all perspectives should be the first step in any research in order to bring the evidence to bear for decision making to occur… Samueli Institute has the expertise and the management processes in place to allow these kinds of stakeholders to come together for their voices to be heard, drive the research questions to evidence based conclusions and recommendations that then can be made with all stakeholders involved.
