Devaluing the Think Tank. One of the most peculiar, and least understood, features of the Washington policy process is the extraordinary dependence of policymakers on the work of think tanks.

Devaluing the Think Tank

Most Americans — even most of those who follow politics closely — would probably struggle to name a think tank or to explain precisely what a think tank does. Yet over the past half-century, think tanks have come to play a central role in policy development — and even in the surrounding political combat. Notes from the field: the usefulness of early workshops. One of the things I learned from other folks at the Bank I work with is the usefulness of doing a workshop early in the early design of an impact evaluation to bring the project and the impact evaluation team together to hammer out design.

Seven Deadly Sins of Impact Evaluation

Impact evaluations—typically, third-party studies that seek to prove a program model’s effectiveness—seem to be all the rage in social sector circles these days. Maybe in part that’s because the process seems so straightforward: Just commission one when the time is right, and, when all goes well, proudly show off your “stamp of approval.” You’ll soon receive the resources you need to grow your organization and to influence all the other nonprofits in your field.

Home. Social Research Methods. IDPM publications. IDPM Research (School of environment and Development - The University of Manchester) Research is central to IDPM's mission to raise the capabilities of individuals and organisations in developing countries. In the Research Assessment Exercise 2008, a periodic government review of the quality of research in UK universities, 65% of IDPM’s research was assessed as ‘world-class’, and in significant areas was viewed as ‘world-leading’. This means that not only is IDPM contributing at a global level to debates about poverty and development, but in some areas is setting the pace. Our research focuses on major issues of development policy and practice including poverty analysis and poverty reduction policies, macro-economic and trade policy, development finance, human resource and organisational development, development informatics, public sector reform, institutional change, economic and social development, sustainable livelihoods and sustainable development, social protection, post-conflict reconstruction, and resource and environmental management.
