Angers 2017

During the workshop, methodological challenges associated with the use of experimental approaches to evaluate agricultural policies will be discussed. Instead of an open call for paper, we have invited researchers or people working close to policy makers to present their work and shed some light on one or two of these methodological challenges. Other participants will have the opportunity to present their on-going projects and ideas during the workshop through different activities (round-tables, world café, debates and discussions following presentations by invited speakers…). We believe that this format will allow more indepth discussions and will help us to build a productive working group on experimental approaches for agricultural policy evaluation.
