Article by Prof. Olejniczak in the Highly Cited Article Collection of Bristol University Press

An article by Professor Karol Olejniczak, a researcher from SWPS University’s Institute of Social Sciences, has been included in the Highly Cited Article Collection published by Bristol University Press.

The article, “Policy labs: the next frontier of policy design and evaluation?”, first appeared in the Policy & Politics journal in January 2020 (Volume 48, No. 1).

“Policy labs: the next frontier of policy design and evaluation?”

The article explores the potential benefits to public policy of combining traditional evaluative inquiry with insights developed dynamically in policy labs. Researchers critically analyzed twenty leading labs from five continents through a literature review as well as policy and program evaluation practices. They assessed the extent to which the purpose, structures and processes used in policy labs address three challenges: (1) establishing the causality and value of public interventions, (2) explaining mechanisms of change, and (3) utilizing research findings in public policy. The article concludes that creating synergies between evaluation inquiry and policy labs can improve the design and implementation of public policy and programs.

The key finding from the research project - the REACT framework for running lab's operation - has helped implement the series of gov_LAB projects with Polish local governments and the Polish Agency of Enterprise Development.
