FREE Webinar: Never mind the research piece! Communicating in policy environments

Join us on March 18 at 2 p.m. GMT for a FREE webinar by Politics&Ideas and CIPPEC (with the support of GDNet) on how to re-think our current focus in research communications. We will propose to de-centre it from the research work and instead focus on the context of policy and politics.

dialogoDuring one hour and a half Vanesa Weyrauch (Co-founder of Politics&Ideas and Associate Researcher of the Center for the Implementation of Public Policies promoting Equity and Growth-CIPPEC) will share our new reflections that take into account the multilayered and multi-actoral nature of research communications. Then  Rebecca Pointer (Information and Communications Officer at Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies-PLAAS, South Africa) and René Hernández (Director of Communications at Fundación Salvadoreña para el Desarrollo Económico y Social-FUSADES, El Salvador) will also share their experiences and thinking about how we can become better at communicating for and within public policies.

This webinar will be useful for anyone thinking about how to strategize communicationsto enhance the way it helps research contribute to policy.

You are invited to read some of these reflections in our conceptual note: Never mind the research piece! Communicating for and within policy environments
