Our Conference Theme Emphasizes the Need to Use Research and Evidence at Every Stage of the Policy Process | APPAM Leadership Blog Series

For me, fall is a refreshing season of new beginnings. Our member universities are back in full swing, students are launching into their research for the academic year, and the fall conference is just around the corner. I am proud of our conference theme this year, Evidence for Action: Encouraging Innovation and Improvement. The programming emphasizes the need to use research and evidence at every stage of the policy process.

False Choices, Policy Framing, and the Promise of "Big Data"

May 29, 2014 11:00 AM

This week, APPAM looks back at Paul Decker's Presidential Address from the 2013 Fall Research Conference. His talk addresses the use of evidence in policymaking and public management—which are sometimes seen as separate. Decker, now Past-President of the Association, views them as strongly connected from the perspective of APPAM, and sees them as critical elements of the path forward for the organization.
