Award Sponsors

The Alliance for Useful Evidence - Best Use of Evidence by a Politician

"Although governments and policymakers have access to more evidence than ever before, this does not always feed into policy. We want to highlight where politicians have made a difference by basing policy-making on authoritative evidence. We are therefore pleased to team up with the Political Studies Association in inviting members of the public to nominate those politicians who have clearly shown a commitment to the use of evidence in their work this year."

- Jonathan Breckon, Head of the Alliance for Useful Evidence
