ZIF grants funding for international workshop
The Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZIF) at Bielefeld University has decided to fund an international workshop on global philanthropic organizations. The workshop titled "Evidence-based benevolence? The role of philanthropic organizations global public policies" will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Alexandra Kaasch, PD Dr. Marc Mölders, Dr. Evelyn Moser (Bonn), Prof. Dr. Oliver Razum, and Prof. Dr. Holger Straßheim. In areas such as global public health, climate change, or poverty allevitation, philanthropic organizations have become both the providers and proponents of evidence-based policies. The workshop investigates the implications by assembling internationally renowed researchers. What do we know about the impact of evidence-based and data-driven policies on policy decisions? What are the underlying political and epistemic belief systems? What are the consequences for democracy?
The workshop will take place on March 27-29 at the ZIF.
