Evidence Based Policy In A Post-Conflict Context: A Case Study From Nepal
Abstract:
Bringing evidence on governance issues into policy is not an easy task, but broadly sharing the same evidence to enable greater democratic ownership to take root, is even more challenging. International donors are mainly involved in producing evidence on the topic of governance because of their interest in influencing country-based policy by scoring and ranking across countries in order to produce a naming and shaming effect. In the case of developing countries, this evidence is also used as conditionality for foreign aid. Meanwhile, in-country think tanks and research institutes are producing governance evidence. Ruling national elites, however, may question the rigour, ideology and alliances used in generating such evidence.
