OECD Expert Briefing: From Research to the Real World - How Governments Can Use What the OECD Produces

 

**Please note this event has been rescheduled from Tuesday, Jan 26 to Friday, Jan 29**

 

The OECD produces powerful domestic policy tools for governments by setting benchmarks, comparing progress, and pointing out best practices. But are policymakers and stakeholders in OECD member and partner countries using this information to their citizens’ best advantage?
