Workshop on alternative modes of evaluating EU Impact Assessments

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesOrganiser of major conference


This workshop aims to advance available techniques and approaches for evaluating European Union’s Impact Assessments (IA). Whereas mainstream meta-assessment methods (such as scorecards) are helpful to provide an indication of the quality of IAs, they do not give the full picture. Our starting claim is that a comprehensive analysis of the quality of IAs should also aim to capture the relationship between policy makers on the one hand, and scientific communities and private consultancies on the one hand. Especially in times of an externalization and pluralization of policy advisory landscapes, it is relevant to ask which knowledge feeds into IAs and of which quality it is. This workshop sheds light on this issue by reflecting on alternative approaches to assess the quality of IA.
