The Center for Evidence-Based Crime Policy at George Mason University joined forces this year with the Campbell Collaboration to host a Joint Symposium on Evidence-Based Policy. Held at George Mason University on August 15 – 16, 2011, this symposium brought together leaders, scholars, and practitioners in the fields of crime and justice, education, social welfare, international development, and evaluation methodology for an impressive array of panels, special workshops, and plenaries. Through these events, we hoped to engage with our communities in an ongoing discussion about the development, use, and improvement of evaluation research for decision making in public policy.
