November 3, 2020 - PEP hosted a webinar on “Designing and contextualising research to solve specific policy problems” as part of the What Works Global Summit (WWGS) 2020.

PEP believes that research must be conducted in full awareness of the local and policy contexts if it is to produce evidence that is relevant and useful for informing policy decisions. 

In this session, Maria Laura Alzua, PEP’s Research Director for Experimental Research, and Marjorie Alain, PEP’s Director of Communications and Monitoring and Evaluation, discussed the organisation’s approach to contextualising research for policy use. Three PEP grant recipients – Guillermo CrucesLevison Chiwaula and Sebastian Schäber – then presented and discussed their experiences in Argentina, Malawi and Guinea Bissau, respectively.

Prof. Jane Mariara, Executive Director of PEP, moderated the discussion.

This session was held as part of the What Works Global Summit 2020, co-hosted by the Campbell Collaboration and the Danish Center for Social Science Research (VIVE).
