The Institute of Public Administration New Zealand (IPANZ) has invited distinguished scientist Professor Sir Peter Gluckman to speak at Te Papa, on Thursday 21 February, 7.30-8.30 pm. His lecture is entitled: “Communicating and using evidence in policy formation: the use and misuse of science”. The lecture will be recorded by Radio New Zealand.
One of the key challenges for all governments is how to make the best use of evidence in policy formation. The challenges include identifying what research and knowledge is needed and how to apply it to government policy making. As science has become more complex and impacts on every aspect of our lives, offering solutions to many of the problems the world confronts, these issues become more urgent. Science alone does not, and should not, make policy but policy made in the absence of information and science-based evidence is not good policy.
Sir Peter’s office (Office of the Prime Minister’s Science Advisory Committee) has conducted an extensive discussion with officials across government, and with partner offices overseas, to see if we can better use evidence in policy formation. He will outline the many ways in which this can be achieved.
