In this public lecture, PERU’s Professor Morris will reflect back over his experience working as a civil servant, independent researcher and in academia, looking at how research methods and understandings of causation in policy and programme evaluation have changed. The talk will focus particularly on the role of experimental methods and the history of their use in social policy evaluation and some of the debates that have arisen.

This lecture will be introduced by Vice Chancellor Malcolm Press and will be followed with a response from David H Greenberg (Professor Emeritus in Economics at The University of Maryland).

Wine reception at 5.30 and lecture starts at 6pm.
