Evidence-based Policy Making

Evidence-based Policy Making

What is it?

Evidence-based policy making is a means of gathering and sharing better evidence and understanding of young people’s living conditions, values and attitudes to share with other relevant policy fields.

What are the aims?

For government strategies and policies for young people to be successful, they have to be based on concrete evidence, experience and knowledge about young people's values and attitudes.

Who is involved?

Several bodies within the European Commission gather or analyse data on young people’s experience of life (Eurostat, the Directorates-General for Communication, Education and Culture, Research, and the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency).
