Evidence-based decision making: who's counting the evidence and who's evidence counts?

The phrase 'evidence-based policy and practice' tends to assume a direct relationship between the gathering of evidence - through research, for example - and the use of that evidence in public policy making. In reality the relationship between evidence and policy is much more complex. This symposium will bring together speakers from the worlds of research, funding bodies, and public policy, to discuss who uses evidence, how they use it, and which evidence counts.
