Workshops on the Evaluation of Public Policies

IRVAPP embarked on various training activities during the first year. The first was a seminar series of four events on "Logical fundamentals and methods for policy impact evaluation". The first seminar - held on April 4 and 5 - was concerned with the logic of counterfactual analysis and causal inference for experimental and quasi-experimental designs. The second seminar (May 9) dealt with the logic of multi-level modeling and its application to evaluation research. The third seminar (6 and 7 June) was concerned with the statistical methods and techniques for policy impact evaluation. The last seminar (13 June) looked into the technical aspects of multi-level modeling. An average of 25 people (PhD students, academic and non-academic researchers, Bank of Italy policy evaluators) attended each seminar.
