– Expert workshop “Experimental designs in social policy research: strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats”, 10-11 September 2020, Stockholm University (SOFI), Sweden

Experimental and quasi-experimental research designs have become more popular in social policy research, following the general trend in micro-economics and sociology of advocating social experiments as the main tool for studying causal effects. What types of questions are relevant in social policy research? When are experiments in social policy research well motivated – or best avoided? How long should experi­ments last? Can all questions relevant to social policy research be answered (in practice and in principle) using experimental methods, or is there a continued need for other methods? This expert workshop will draw on the experiences of participants working with experimental or quasi-experimental designs in social policy research.
