How Research Can Assist Policy: The Case of Economic Reforms in Uganda

John Mackinnon and Ritva Reinikka ()

World Bank Research Observer, 2002, vol. 17, issue 2, 267-292

Abstract: Research has had a powerful impact on policy in Uganda, affecting the climate of opinion, improving the quality of the policy debate, and helping focus public policy and intervention on poverty reduction. Uganda's successful use of knowledge and research to help set public policy priorities demonstrates that even a poor postconflict country can, in a relatively short period of time, create an effective information base and feedback mechanisms for decisionmaking.
