How well do masks protect in the pandemic? How do the side effects of vaccination compare with the consequences of the disease? What is the impact of school closures on students’ mental health? During the Covid 19 pandemic, it has become clear how heavily political decisions rely on information from science. And it has become evident that research findings can inform policy decisions, but cannot replace them.
The ZiF research group „The Epistemology of Evidence-Based Policy: How Philosophy Can Facilitate the Science-Policy Interface“ has been working at ZiF from February to June 2023. At the Forum the group will present and discuss the results of their work.
Please direct any inquiries about the research group „The Epistemology of Evidence-Based Policy: How Philosophy Can Facilitate the Science-Policy Interface„ to the coordinator Ricardo Kaufer:
