Evidence matters. Yet even before “fake news” became a political weapon, it’s been notoriously difficult to get evidence into the policymaking process. How can we keep good evidence from being overwhelmed by bad politics?

Join us as three world-renowned experts Professor John Church, Kaldor Centre Director Jane McAdam and international scholar and policymaker Walter Kälin talk about their experience from the front lines of research and policymaking in contentious areas – climate change, refugees and, where the two meet, climate change- and disaster-related displacement.
