We are studying strategies for making social interventions and policies more effective and efficient and are informing policy makers with reliable evidence on which programs achieve the desired results. Our approach to social programs is to treat them as products with social value and content. By treating them as social products,in which substantive resources are invested, we objectively evaluate them using state-of-the-art methodology. We test if the program works, check if there are any adverse program effects, use optimization tools to make changes and adjustment to the program to make it more cost- and outcome effective.
We believe that the path to achieve better results through social programs is not only through increasing public expenditure, but also using the programs that are shown to be most efficient and effective in changing the targeted outcomes.
Our scientific projects support the following steps in creating effective social interventions:
Some examples of social interventions that can be rigorously evaluated and optimized are:
What are the protective and risk factors of positive fathering? Implications for policy and intervention
Children in Institutionalized Care: developmental effects
