Connecting conflict-related scientific researchers, field experts and decision makers
Let's stop working separately and improve synergies between scientific researchers, field experts and decision makers. Our novel platform PEACE TALKS: policy and research, aims to do just that in three steps.
Identify key conflict-related challenges for the world
Spot relevant top scientific research associated with these challenges, field experts and policy-makers
Connect them live through a webinar and make the recordings available through our YouTube channel
Together, we could enrich research with the knowledge of field experts and, discuss and shape policy recommendations directly with decision-makers.
There are at least three main axes on how research in economics can be useful to society and more specifically to policymakers: by evaluating a policy, doing predictions, providing broad impact/perspective
