Applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis. Final deadline is Monday 22 September 2014


 

 

What


In a time of limited resources, policy initiatives to tackle labour market disadvantage have to be chosen carefully. Across the OECD, policymakers and practitioners are increasingly looking to use evidence-based approaches and policies to help guide this decision-making. However, capacities to collect and use evidence vary considerably, both between countries and between local and national stakeholders within a single country.


This seminar will focus on how countries can establish a policy framework to enable effective local action using an evidence-based approach, choosing between different measures when resources are scarce. The latest evidence from OECD countries on ‘what works’ and ‘what doesn’t’ will be considered, with participants sharing their own experiences from their perspectives as policy makers, researchers, practitioners and social entrepreneurs.


This seminar is organised under the framework of LEED’s Forum on Partnerships and Local Development and Forum on Social Innovations, in collaboration with the Directorate for Employment, Labour, and Social Affairs. The result of this work will lead to the preparation of a handbook for policymakers and practitioners.



How

The 1 day expert seminar will explore:

 

What does it mean to use an evidence-based approach?

 

What does existing evidence tell us about effective approaches to tackling labour market disadvantage at the local and national level?

 

How can policymakers, practitioners and researchers work together to more effectively collect and use evidence, particularly at the local level?

Lively discussions on each of these topics will be kicked off by presentations from experts, policymakers, and practitioners. In order to foster discussion and encourage active participation, space at the seminar will be limited.



Who

The seminar will bring together policymakers, academics, evaluators, practitioners and social entrepreneurs who are interested in developing and using evidence in tackling labour market disadvantage.
