Evidence : for policy and wheresoever rigor is a must.

Cartwright, Nancy D. (2013) 'Evidence : for policy and wheresoever rigor is a must.', London: London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Order Project Discussion Paper Series.

Abstract

This collection has been assembled under the auspices of the Templeton project, God's Order, Man's Order and the Order of Nature, which I helped direct. Much of my work on that project was concerned with Man's Order. Specifically, with how better to use scientific evidence to improve Man's Order. My research in this area grew out of a study of evidence-based policy, which attempts to use evidence from the sciences to evaluate whether policies that have been tried have succeeded and to predict whether those we are thinking of trying will produce the outcomes we aim for.
