From Evidence to Policy: Celebrating 40 Years of Policy Research
From Evidence to Policy: Celebrating 40 Years of Policy Research is a volume intended for a wide audience with the intent to highlight the role of research in evidence-based policymaking process. This collection of essays will show the readers the rich history of the Philippine Institute for Development Studies from the moment it was founded to its more recent triumphs as one of the top-ranking think tanks in the world. Celebratory yet sober, this volume will serve as a good introduction to aspiring policy researchers and a sentimental trip down memory lane for the veterans of the policy process. A gripping volume of many characters, written by various personalities, this is quite unlike the usual technical papers written about public policy.
