Conference Theme

Advancing Policy Research with Cross-Disciplinary Perspectives

Public policy as a field is inherently cross-disciplinary, and some of the best policy research engages perspectives from sociology, political science, psychology, economics, history, education, law, public health, medicine, business, and other disciplines. But far too often we retreat to our disciplinary silos. How can we productively incorporate multidisciplinary perspectives in policy research? What assumptions need to be challenged? What barriers need to be overcome? What types of evidence are relevant and appropriate? Under what conditions is a uni-disciplinary approach more effective than a cross-disciplinary approach? The 2022 APPAM Fall Research Conference will highlight policy research that engages multidisciplinary perspectives and will aim to identify facilitators and barriers to effective cross-disciplinary collaboration for increasing the impact of policy research.
