The Public Impact Observatory (Centre for Public Impact)

The observatory is an online database full of public policy case studies. It includes examples of public policy initiatives that have succeeded or failed, and draws out lessons for future policy initiatives. Case studies cover anything from the development of universal basic education in Nigeria, through to the roll out of a carbon tax in Australia. They are examined in terms of their evidence base, how they engaged with stakeholders and other criteria.
