The UK launch of Spaces of Evidence takes place on Friday, March 28, 2014 at the University of Essex, featuring talks from Nancy Cartwright, Rosalind Eyben, Ayo Wahlberg, Carolijn Terwindt and Simon Cohn.

Spaces of Evidence is a global network of scholars, practitioners and activists exploring the intersections of politics, measurement and evidence-based policy in health, development, economics and medicine. Drawing on research from medical anthropology, sociology, economics and science and technology studies, our network explores the “spaces” of evidence: where and under what social and political circumstances is evidence in the social and medical sciences produced? How inclusive or exclusive are spaces of evidence? Enlarging the sphere of debate, this collaborative project opens the black ‘base’ of evidence-based policy.

The launch event will be an intimate brainstorming meeting aimed at developing different disciplinary collaborations and planning future network events. The meeting is open to members of the public, but spaces are extremely limited. To book a space, please write to
